Here is the facts about the scz:
The larger the density of population and more advanced the social cultures are, the more scz’s there are.
For instance metros compared to rural areas in the USA have far more scz’s per capita. In other words the odds of being scz are slim to none in the rural areas compared to the metros. Well, also the drugs, sexual molestation, violence, every kind of crime you can think of including armed robbery, murder, and “white collar financial crimes” are all sky high in metros per capita compared to the rural areas.
When you compare nations though it is similar. For instance the mental problems in Mexico, India, and Africa don’t compare to the ones of Europe and the USA. Also people with mental maladies recover at a much higher rate in a 3rd world nation in the rural area such as India than people do anywhere else.
I think part of it a lot of times is people are paid to be mentally ill. I also know there are many factors in the regions that contribute to mental illnesses which if eliminated would reduce the mental illnesses.
I won’t go totally philosophical with this, but when I show people a fence picket, and I ask how many truths they can tell me about it, they say only a few. Then I ask for 50 truths, and they can’t imagine ever coming close, but if I start to pay them for each truth, and I increase the pay over 50 truths, then over 100 truths, and over 150 truths and so on, then suddenly they can make a few thousand dollars that day. They may use the internet to lay it all out for me too.
The point is is that life to 80% of people is like the fence picket to everyone that I show it to at first. They barely see more than it’s an aesthetic are hallmark of social statuses and community kinship, and they have always just driven by them accepting that that is all there is to them never thinking more about what they are supposed to believe and feel about them. But the fact is that their are thousands of truths about just one picket, and similarly there are millions of truths about human life from beginning of history to now, in each life and in each culture, laws, resources, and it goes on and on.
It is so complex that it takes decades of research and real first hand experience just to get a handle on it let alone actually figure out what we are really facing here in this realm.
Saying the truth about the mental illness rates and recovery rates between metros and rural areas, 1st world nations and 3rd world rural areas won’t seem real to some people, but those same people are the ones that have always just drove by the picket white fences of life only knowing one thing about them; how they make them “feeeeeel” in that neighborhood. Feeling is a truth about the one feeling not about anything or anyone else.
So it’s just word for mouth…my .02 cents.
