One Out Of Four People In This Country Is Mentally Unbalanced

Hopefully the above mental health joke picture made you laugh.  However, there is a story behind the picture.  The slogan was originally devised by Ann Lander to gain the attention of her audience. 'One out of four people in this country is Mentally Unbalanced.  Think of your 3 closest friends... if they seem okay, then you're The One.' Addendum: One unexpected insight from running a humour site is that every joke offends someone.  We learned this the hard way because even though we publish only clean jokes, we get dozens of complaints, none more than about mental health.  We thought about deleting this material, but decided to keep it, this is our reasoning: we do find the above picture amusing, and we also feel that people who would be truly upset, are unlikely to be trawling a humour site for mental health jokes.

Guy Takes the Bathtub Test for Mental HealthBathtub test for maddness

During a visit to the mental asylum, Guy asked the Director what the criterion was that defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized. 'Well,' said the Director, 'we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.' 'Oh, I understand,' said Guy. 'A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or teacup. 'No.' said the Director, 'A normal person would pull the plug. (Pause.) ... Guy, do you want a bed near the window?'
Edgar Allen Poe "I became insane with long intervals of horrible sanity."

How to Achieve Inner Peace

Here's some advice from a top psychologist: Dr. Neil proclaimed the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started.  So I looked around my house to see things I started and hadn't finished; and, before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Pinot Noir, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bottle of Baileys, a bottle of Kaluha, a packet of Penguins, the remainder of bottle of Prozac, Valium prescriptions, the rest of the Cheesecake, and a box of chocolates. You have no idea how good I feel.

Psychiatrist's AdviceMental health jokes and quotes

Reality is the leading cause of stress amongst those in touch with it.  Jane Wagner If you think about the mental health topic more carefully, all sorts of demons crawl out of the woodwork.  In my case it made me think, 'who are the sane?' I also remember the case of a psychiatrist who treated a woman who was insane, but harmless.  She thought that the 5 dolls she tended were her actual children, the reality was she was unmarried and had no children. The psychiatrist said that he would not cure her even if he could because she was enjoying her fantasies so much.

A Psychiatric Joke

Neurotics build castles in the air. Psychotics live in them. Psychiatrists are the people who collect the rent.

Testing PatientMental health jokes and quotes

Dr. Marley, the head psychiatrist at Front Lawn Asylum, is examining patients to see if they're recovered and ready to re-enter society. 'So, Mr Lewis,' the doctor says to one of his patients, 'I see from your chart that you've been recommended for discharge. Do you have any idea what you might do once you leave here?' Henry Lewis thinks for a moment, then replies, 'Well, I went to a college for telecommunications. That's still a good field, good money there. But on the other hand, I thought I might write a book about my experience here in the hospital, what it's like to be a patient here. People might be interested in reading a book like that. In addition, I thought I might go to evening school and study art history, which I've grown interested in lately.' Dr. Marley nods, looks pleased and says, 'Yes, those all sound like intriguing possibilities.' So Henry Lewis replies, 'And the best part is, in my spare time, I can go on being a coffee pot.'

Group Therapy

A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with young mothers. "You all have obsessions," he observed. To the first mother, Mary, he said: "You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy." He turned to the second Mum, Ann: "Your obsession is with money. It manifests itself in your children's names, Penny, Goldie and Frank (German father)." He turned to the third Mum, Joyce: "Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your children's names: Brandy and Sherry. You even called the cat, "Whisky". He then turned to the fourth Mum June: "Your obsession is with flowers. Your girls are called Rose, Daphne & Poppy." Write your own ending At this point you can either leave the story here, and just see if these patterns fit any of your friends, or else you can write a rude ending.

Mental Health Joke or Truth?

Mental health humour is a difficult topic, here is what the best brains say about madness:- There's a fine line between genius and insanity.  I have erased this line. Oscar Levant Every man is wise when attacked by a mad dog; fewer when pursued by a mad woman; only the wisest survive when attacked by a mad notion. Robertson Davies Reality is something you rise above. Liza Minnelli I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it. Mary Chase Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence. Henrik Tikkanen People often write me and ask how I keep my wood floors so clean when I live with a child and a dog, and my answer is that I use a technique called 'Suffering From a Mental Illness'. Heather Armstrong Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined. Samuel Goldwyn If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane.  Jimmy Buffett Most men are within a finger's breadth of being mad. Diogenes the Cynic I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.' Umberto Eco Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege. Unknown One out of four people in this country is Mentally Unbalanced. Ann Lander When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained. Mark Twain Insane people are always sure that they are fine. It is only the sane people who are willing to admit that they are crazy.  Nora Ephron Everyone is born with genius, but most people only keep it a few minutes. Edgard Varese Mental health jokes and quotes I quit therapy because my analyst was trying to help me behind my back.  Richard Lewis When dealing with the insane, the best method is to pretend to be sane.

Althought none of the above mental health statements are completely true, what is so disturbing, is that each author discloses a grain of truth.  Will and Guy Inner Peace Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have. - Doris Mortman To conquer others requires force; to conquer oneself requires enlightenment - Lao Tzu
