We like to suggest that we all love each other, and have thoughts with love for everyone. But I don 't believe that 's true for mentally ill people. In of Mice and Men the character Lennie suffers from mental retardation, people around him don 't know anything about mental illness so they brush it off as him being dumb. Leading him to kill a woman, and then die because of it. We still treat people with halfhearted treatments, some people who are treating the mentally ill are not professionally licensed, some countries don 't even have a mentally health policy causing mentally ill patients not to seek help, and even in the USA we think people who are mentally ill seek
This issue got everyone really worried, sad, but also mad because every single day that passed, his kids, wife, and even his elderly parents kept telling him to stop smoking. What made his situation worse was that not only he smoked, but he also drank alcohol every single night. That made his liver get really useless and in a bad condition. He used to get really drunk, but he claimed that
Before my dad’s death in 1989 I had suffered from mental, sexual, and physical abuse at different times, from different people. I blamed him for not stopping it, for not saving me, and his death added to my pile of excuses to fail. An alcoholic right from the start, I learned how to drink like the pros around me: as fast as I could until the bottle was empty. I found this fun and the lack of accountability was empowering. I hated being weak and I especially hated being the victim, so I became manipulative, and took advantage of the weakness of others.
This causes the readers to realize things about themselves in a negative way. This would not be good at all because at that age stress and depression occurs the most other than for adults, but these teens feel that it’s worse than adults. Killing Mr. Griffin by Lois Duncan was banned in California by not just one school, but two.

In 1998 in California the book was challenged at Sinnott Elementary School in Milpitas because it contained language.
When Jeannette explains to Rex Walls what Erma did to Brian, he starts to shake and cover his ears and pretend like he couldn’t hear them. After Lori and Jeannette talk, Jeannette thinks, “You’d be weird, too, if Erma was your mom... it would explain a lot… Why he drank so much and why he got so angry.” Rex Walls tried to escape from Welch and its people for a better future, but in the end couldn’t escape from his problems because he focused too much on his past and never gave the future his complete attention. When the mines started to shut down, many people turned to alcohol and drugs to keep their minds off of their problems in life. Erma also turned to alcohol and drugs to forget her past, and abused Rex Walls both mentally, physically, and sexually, eventually leading Rex Walls down the same path with alcohol and drugs which made him lose all hope. Jeannette knows that both of her parents have no ambition to leave Welch for a better life, so she has to act independently to get out of Welch.
Fowler is menacing, straightforward, and is exceptionally full of hostility. Fowler seems to lack emotion, with his regular use of opium being a numbing solution, “Opium makes you quick-witted – perhaps only because it calms the nerves and stills the emotions. Nothing, not even death, seems so important.” (Greene 17) He has disturbing memories from the war, opium possibly soothes this distress. Fowler’s relationship with Phuong is strictly physical to the readers, but his vulnerability begins to show through towards the end of the novel. He is not one to form an opinion, and that easily aggravates those in his life, such as his wife.
Children who refuse to take the drugs are beaten or killed.” (Michelle Steel para 18). This defeats the statement of when others state that drugs were a choice, they were forced into taking the drugs in which brainwashed them into killing people. As described and outlooked, countless of the innocent were so drugged that they had no idea what they were doing. If the adolescents were drugged, this causes an issue, because not only does it make them clueless as to what they are doing, but moreover, completely unaware. The more soldiers that were drugged, the more that were killed because they were under the influence.
He went upstairs to ask Lisa if she had seen it. They went downstairs and he said “it was right there, like do you remember seeing it?” He tried to use muscle memory to help find it. She answers him, “no, and I hate when you treat me like your associates at work.” Lisa never liked Chris’ communication skills; he could make her talk, but she did not like talking. She went upstairs and later, Chris was making coffee when she said it again, “I hate when you treat me like one of your associates.” It was his breaking point. “It was the only time in our thirteen year relationship that I lost it.” All he said to her was, “and I hate it when you ******* whine at the kids and make them cry.” He left the kitchen, and when he woke up, he was downstairs, and he could hear Sarah and Edward crying.
They were watered by the alcohol I poured down the drain to keep my parents sober. Sixth to seventh grade became the period of my life where I thought nothing would get better. My teachers would tell me “The sky’s the limit!”, but I didn’t understand. I couldn’t even get off the ground. The red ink marks my homework bled were mirrored on my body as battle scars as the result of my poor grades and lack of interest in what the school was teaching me.
