> Nevertheless... I'm not sure that the incidence, normalized by age, for any particular mental illness has changed much over history. Many of these disorders, especially severe ones, have onsets in the 20s. I'm sure this has probably been true forever.

We tend to assume that AIDS, Ebola, and many other
"emergent" pathogens are something new. However, one was more likley to die from infections, cancer, TB, ect. Till we learned to treat them.
Now what was difficult to catch (do to the fact more common things would kill you first) is getting common. We had a few decades reprieve, but that is over.
