PostSubject: Mental Health Awareness after Columbine   Fri Apr 21, 2017 8:44 pm

As I look up old op-eds, there seems to less of a question of outside influence on the two killers. Violent society, violent movies, violent video games, violent music, Hitler, even the US govt, etc...

Very few ask the question of if there was something uniquely wrong with the two killers. As Chris Rock said, "What ever happened to crazy?"

Fortunately, I think taking care of "crazy" improved a lot after Columbine, even if people didn't see it that way at the time. Yes, mass shootings happen, but people see it as the result of a mental state now.

Nature vs. Nurture etc.

The diathesis-stress model also may explain people's actions/reactions.

*I personally believe that some mass shootings happen simply because the shooter wants to be infamous and has nothing to do with stress/environment/etc.

I believe the fame motive is a big one, but only someone with mental illness would go through with it.
