What is the world coming to when neighbors of a woman sunbathing on her front lawn call in the mental health police to determine if she's 'sane'? In these modern times of anti-psychotics and anti-depressants, we must question - is there really that many of us that are 'chemically imbalanced' or is there something else at work? Is it us or is it the environment we live in? We explore these issues on this episode of Elephant Talk, as well as alternatives to the mental health system.
