Stigmatizing mental illness is but one of multiple examples of how American Culture does not believe in science or the scientific method for understanding the world. Consider the data: 46% of Americans do NOT believe in evolution. The majority of US citizens do NOT believe in "global warming" or climate science. these numbers are vastly different from other industrialized nations which do accept science. So why are we surprised about stigmatizing mental illness, addiction, trauma, etc?
