A site which has some useful articles for those diagnosed mentally ill or suspect they themselves are. Indeed, I've suspected it of myself and my family has the same history but "clinically confirmed."

The writings reek of Christian thought about love and "righteousness," however you can safely ignore that and get to the content which places responsibility for mental illness upon the self. While the idea applied to certain disorders like Autism may seem far-fetched, for others the idea that illnesses are actually selfish reactions to pains within your past is not. The key point in all of it is that responsibility for your actions lie with you, above those who hurt you or caused you pain and that it is only you who can stop reacting selfishly by changing your intentions and redirecting your will.

Postread Warning: The whole following message of mine reeks of shallowness. It could best be summed up as me reconciling the website I linked with previous intuitions into human nature.

That vulnerability is a double-edged sword. Without it, a child would not learn and imitate adequately enough from their parents or caregivers to survive. With it, they're open to "negative" influence and attack. Their slate is not clean to begin with, being a mixed bag of altruistic and selfish behaviors (as the website puts so binary 1/0, Xt. like. Of course the altruistic behaviors are selfishly motivated as well.) There is, of course, a primal aspect to that decision: those who look and behave more similar to ourselves, assuming all else equal among others, we'd choose to associate with and "give" more to. Someone is likely ill if, subconsciously, they make irrational decisions.

What's rational (in a general circumstance and logical sense) is to give or be friendly first with strangers. See game theory - Richard Dawkins. This is assuming a lack of knowledge of their previous behavior. One such example where this behavior doesn't work is in war. You're going to stereotype someone dressed as the enemy as being that enemy and respond with hostile contact first. When someone consistently behaves hurtfully or irrationally toward people who are actually trying to help them or people whom they have little provocation or reason to be hostile toward, they become open to the categorization of being mentally ill. The difference between illness and disability is that there are episodes of illness whereas a disability has a behavior happening constantly, has a physical reason underlying it and is (for current medical capability) unending and untreatable.
