Things Six: The Fine Line Between Guns and Mental Health

Things You Didn't Know You Wanna Know That You Should Know

Dec 10 2022 • 56 mins

Should we blame gun violence on mental illness? That's the question we examine in this episode of 'Things.'  After instances of mass violence, in particular school shootings, mental illness is often identified as—or assumed to be—a root cause. But is that a fair assumption? We take a closer look at mental health and its correlation to mass shootings. Exploring inadequate gun control and mental health as causes for gun violence in the same conversation is complicated. But it's necessary because it's the conversation we are stuck with. Our featured guest, Dr. Sheryl Ziegler, helps us better recognize when mental illness is being used as a scapegoat or smokescreen for the debate over gun control. This is a conversation you won't want to miss!!!
