True. However...at the moment, there is a little bit of a tendency to throw the mental health card into the mix whenever you’ve done something not quite right. Finch clearly has a problem, and he needs to get the appropriate help for his own sake and his family’s. But not everything is about self-medicating underlying MH issues; sometimes it’s about spending your entire adult life being the incorrigible party boy, and getting yourself into a big, big hole as a result. See also: Inglis, Pearce, and a multitude of others who are suddenly ‘fighting demons’ when they get caught out behaving appallingly.Some pretty poor comments in here. Wow. Mental health is a massive issue and regardless of the trigger, those suffering should not be denigrated.
(Incidentally, I spent the early hours of this morning doing a fair bit of reading and writing for a uni task that covered over-diagnosis of major depressive disorders, among other things. Night shift entertainment!)
