Fixed it for ya. I don't mean to be flippant either, or offensive, but a mental illness is basically an illness like many others -- often with a genetic component, often with a life history component... often treatable with meds and lifestyle changes.

Do you know any diabetics who've been arrested for public drunkenness because hypoglycemia can mimic intoxication? It's not that unusual. Lawyers... expenses... an arrest record... [sarcasm] All richly deserved, because they're sooo irresponsible. [/sarcasm]
