Mental health problems (mood swings, depression, dementia, bipolar disorder, etc) used to be kept secret; and some people felt ashamed of themselves or of their affected relatives. Nowadays we know that such conditions are simply diseases, and can be treated by doctors with varying degrees of success, although the causes of dementia are not yet sufficiently understood.
These conditions can alter our perceptions of the ability, rationality, morality and even the spirituality of sufferers. How to cope? Is research winning? And does faith in God help when you or your spouse no longer recognises anyone?
