Exploring Mental Health Disorders and Creativity
The cognitive issues that occur in most individuals who have mental health illnesses are well recognized. However, it is increasingly recognized that in a few individuals the presence of a mental health illness is closely connected with significant artistic originality and success. This has been seen in painting, music, and other arts, and it appears increasingly likely that the mental health illness is a pre-requisite to these individuals, such as Van Gogh, reaching such extraordinary artistic heights.
