Contents Chapter 1: Is Mental Illness a Serious Problem in the United States? Overview: The Battle to Define Mental Illness Benedict Carey Psychiatrists have no good answer to questions about where mental health ends and illness begins—and the boundary between these two states has become a battle line dividing the profession into two camps.
