Request for Comment[change source]

I would like to request comments from the community on having the term "Mental disabilities" included in this article, referring to Mental health problems. In English, there are lots of different terms including the word "mental" (like mental handicap) which are old terms for people with Learning difficulties. Mental health problems are not disabilities and should not be talked about as if they are. Mental health problems can be treated and controlled with medicine.

Should the term "Mental disabilities" be removed from this article? DaneGeld (talk) 19:02, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

DaneGeld -  Done removed - Whoever added the wikilink probably assumed it simply went to Intellectual disability, But I agree Mental health doesn't even come close and as such it's more offensive than anything to list it so I've removed it, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 19:43, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
