Perhaps but I think the issue (lack of acceptance, support, etc.) is far more widespread because mental illness is viewed as weakness or as evil (bad spirits). It wasn't too long ago that I read that some folks still practice exorcisms and what not. It's like mental illness is something that is done to us, not a disease or something that can be cured.
The brain is the one organ that is still mostly a mystery to people.
