Mental health has been a serious concern across the world which resurfaced when the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world. Many people came forward and stated their problems however using mental health issues as a tool to hide an immoral act is unacceptable. To even consider that Miller would be suffering from mental health issues, he would focus on admitting their mistakes instead of coming up with an excuse as that will strengthen false link between mental health and violent behavior in our minds which would bring harm and discrimination to people genuinely suffering with mental health issues. It is a false stereotype that people suffering from mental health issues commit crimes or assaults while the genuine people suffering from it are peaceful beings who don’t easily hurt others.

According to MentalHealth.gov, the majority of the people suffering from mental health issues are less likely to be violent than others and only 3%–5% of violent acts can be attributed to individuals living with a serious mental illness. According to the fact provided by the portal,  people with severe mental illnesses are over 10 times more likely to be victims of violent crime than the general population, while many people with mental health problems are highly active and productive members of our communities.
