Perspective is an interesting thing isnt’t it.
When I read the headline, 1 in 5 children in Ireland hear voices, I thought, well there you go, if the numbers are that high, it proves that it is a common variation of human experience, rather than an exception.
Yet when I read the article, which instead is alarmed that so many children may be mentally ill.
The question that begs to be answered, is what percentage does there need to be of people hearing voices before it is accepted as a common human experience? 50 %? 80 %? 100 %?
