    Most homeless people DON'T develop schizophrenia, but rather have it and then become homeless. Correlation never implies causation either....

    I already have plenty of info on the fact that plenty of homeless people have mental disorders before they live on the street. I had some info that i can't find anymore that said that the homeless people who were not mentally ill before living on the street will develope schizophrenia in time. This is because they are opposite to society so long that they begin to only see themselves as separate. I'm trying to find that information again. I've been trying google, thanks.

    there's your smart guy right there.
    And seing as schizophrenia isn't a viral disease, you cant go catching
    it from the street. Schizophrenia has nothing to do with 'seing yourself
    as seperate' from society. That would make ever angst ridden teen and
    graffiti writer a schizto, and that's not the case. Schizophrenia is a treated
    with drugs for the most part, so it's a chemical condition and cant be developped just from being homeless.

    how about you reword your thesis.

    "Many homeless people vithdraw from normal, functioning society".
    "There is a large rate of addiction with the homless that could be mistaken for mental conditions."

    "Homeless people have enough shit to deal with without being called crazy."

    You can develope schizophrenia because it is a chemical imbalance. Separating yourself mentally from society can cause paranoia, which can cause a chemical imbalance. Paranioa is also one of the mental disorders that can make up schitzophrenia. Schitzophrenia is different combonations of many disorders. Most people develope it between the ages of 17-35. Alcohol can also cause the chemical imbalance which leads to schizo. I appreciate the feed back. Thanks. Oh Yeah, most graffiti writers are probably going to end up schizophrenic. Correlation never implies causation, but thats exactly where I started from, and that doesn't limit what the possiblity of causation is.

    Why don't you just get off your ass and do a little research before bluntly and arrogantly labeling people with mental disorders, and then asking for a 12oz psychiatrist to back up your theory.

    This post reminds me of this site I found a long time ago that was a dedicated quote database. Wish I had that URL now.
