Chapter 1: Is Mental Illness a Serious Problem in the United
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. On one side
are doctors who say mental illness should include mild conditions that affect
quality of life; on the other are experts who say definitions should be
tightened so resources go to those who need them most.
