"While 2.3 million Americans suffer from bipolar disorder, the National Institute of Mental Health is studying how pigeons think." Only eight percent of NIMH's grants go toward research of clinical or treatment aspects of mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic disorder. In 1997, NIMH spent more money on AIDS research than on schizophrenia research. "Therefore, the total amount of federal funds spent upon individuals with severe psychiatric disorders is over $40 billion per year. This is three times the annual cost of the nation's space program, four times the cost of all our foreign aid programs, and more than 10 times the cost of the federal prison service."
