This is Pretty Funny

This guy has a simple cure for all mental illness - a cuff to the side of the head. Even more absurd is the fact that one psychiatrist also recommended slapping mentally ill people.

In the 1940s and 50s, Dr. John Nathaniel Rosen developed a technique for treating schizophrenic patients that involved slapping them. In 1971, he received the Man of the Year Award from the American Academy of Psychotherapy according to this history of treatments.

Sad, I can' t tell if this is real or satire but then that's the way it is with most psychiatric "treatments" and most are real.

I think it is true though the guy is a little strange.
