As explained in a series of books by Steven Bartlett, most notably “Normality Does Not Equal Mental Health”, normality has unquestioningly been used as a standard for mental health both by the population at large and the psychiatric community since its birth.
In this video we argue that normality is an insufficient standard of mental health by shedding light on the nature of collective psychoses, or forms of mass insanity, which can overtake groups or even entire populations of so-called “normal” individuals.
