Can we and will we are different. Can we? Yes. But it means accessible mental health care. It means professionals who can spot the symptoms real early. Teachers or doctors most likely. Will we? Probably not. Not profitable.
Not sure who I feel saddest for. These people, or the ones they inevitably hurt. Because they always do. Sorry this was so damn long. You hit a nerve.
