Put another way, four out of five Californians are NOT crazy. Here's the actual headline: One in five Californians say they need mental health care. Excerpt:
Almost 5 million California adults say they could use help with a mental or emotional problem, according to a survey released Wednesday by researchers at UCLA. About 1 million of them meet the criteria for "serious psychological distress."
However, only one in three people who perceive a need for mental health services or are in serious distress have seen a professional for treatment, the survey found.
The article addressed a 2005 study and was published in July of 2010. Since that survey Obamacare became the law of the land, and that could have cured a lot of anxiety. But let's take it a face value. If this data were accurate in 2005, we can only assume from the state of the economy in California, the election results there, along with the highly publicized emigration from that once glorious state that the ratio of the remaining crazies to rationals is much higher today.
