Is Mental Health an Illusion?

There are so many terms to describe behavior that is considered deviant from the “norm.”  We often hear things like “loony,” “nutty,” “mad,” “cuckoo,” and “batty,” to describe people who behave differently.  While I don’t condone the use of most of those terms in a derogatory manner, it stands to reason that some research needs to be done in this area.  Is there really a “norm?”  Are there differing levels of aberrant behavior that should each have their own classification?  Can such behavior be modified?  I shall embark on a journey to attempt to answer these questions by gathering a few test subjects, er research assistants, and run an experiment to learn more.  Results should be published here in a few days’ time.  See my facebook page to volunteer.
