5: The Education and Treatment of the Mentally Ill | Very little was done to educate the mentally ill during The Great Depression.

By the time The Great Depression started, more and more Americans were sending family members to asylums. It was far easier to send the mentally ill away than to care for them in urban neighborhoods.
6: Education of the mentally ill has become more mainstream since the beginning of the 21st century. Most mentally ill Americans are given education up to 11th grade, some even more. | Mental Hygiene education sought to educate the youth of America about the risks of mental illnesses. This was done with the belief that mental illnesses could be prevented and the hope that this education would diminish the mentally ill population of the country. | Today in the 21st century, more is known about mental illnesses. There is more education for and about the mentally ill. Prescribed medication is used to aid the mentally ill.
