Blog: Treating the Mentally Ill: Scientology vs Psychiatry - 2017-06-04
I always had a hard time wrapping my mind around Scientology's policy on dealing with the mentally ill.
L. Ron Hubbard wrote that Scientology was for the able and that those not up to standards need not apply. He and his church didn't have the time or energy to deal with the depressed, the neurotic, or the insane. Saving the planet before it exploded was hard, grueling work. Dealing with crazy people was a distraction.
Not until sufficient numbers had gone "Clear" would Scientology handle these people.
