Another Mass Shooting Reignites the Discussion on Mental Illness and Violence

Welcome to The Mental Breakdown and Psychreg Podcast! Today, Dr. Berney and Dr. Marshall discuss the events of October 1, 2017 when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of thousands attending a concert in Las Vegas. In this discussion we review the relationship between mental illness and violence, the problems with falsely associating mental illness and violence, and strategies for coping with such a trauma.
