What are some examples of great figures who have impacted the world despite a mental illness and how could we change the diagnosis and treatment today compared to the time period they lived?
Throughout history, there are many great people who have led, served, and changed the world for the better. Many of these people have suffered from private mental illnesses that they were forced to hide. In this project, I will be researching how key individuals were diagnosed and treated in their time and how these two factors would be changed in the present age. I hope that my project will make people more aware of the stigmas within mental health and the progress that researchers are making.
