Scientifically speaking, is mental illness real, or is it just made up?

>> No.15006540

Both. When you're talking about the brain, made up things can still affect you and terribly damage you.
One example is the placebo and nocebo effects, it isn't real but it still affects you nonetheless

>> No.15006549

I guess that makes sense

Also I guess it stands to reason that some people might have brains that just work a little bit differently, just how we all have different bodies, e.g. some people are good at sports and some people aren't as good

Guess it's just genetic variation isn't it, I mean scientists do say that mental illnesses have a strong genetic component
