My aunt is. I didn't know she was until when I was 13 and my grandma took me to one of my cousin's house to hang with them and we came home at like 1 in the morning and my aunt attacked my grandma. She had me call 911 to have the ambulance come and get her.

I think mental illness runs in my dad's side of my family since it seems like alot of my younger cousins are on medications for all sorts of problems.

i know it's tragic when people harm others but many of the stronger psych meds have nasty/unpleasant side effects. a lot of times you can end up on a cocktail of pills trying to fix the side effects (and side effects of the pills trying to fix the side effects)

refusing medication isn't always just an outgrowth of the mental illness
also most mentally ill people don't harm others. IMO changing the current laws re:medication would do much more harm than good.

IA. And it's true most mentally ill people do not harm others in fact they are often the ones harmed bc of being vulnerable.   I hate the stigmas that go along with mental illness bc the fact is we all know mentally ill people you just don't know their diagnosis and with many you can't tell. Mental illness ranges from very mild like me which they call normal or high functioning to severe.

I think she can report it to protect herself if she feels threatened or unsafe.

Yes

Professionally, because I work in the mental health field, and personally, because I know a few individuals that have a mental illness.

It sounds like the guy in the OP might have something going on mentally but to be honest, more information would be needed to  determine if he is mentally ill (specifically what other  behaviors does he exhibit that your friend thinks are abnormal. Is he engaging in any behavior(s) that are impairing his functioning. His current psychological state and speech and rationale would also have to be examined)

If your coworker is close to him, or if it's a matter that is very important to her, she might want to see if he can go visit (maybe via family) a  professional.
