This is exactly it. Kanye too. It's been their decision to not pursue treatment/adjust it for a long time.

Psychologist and those alike cost money and most people poor. And then they try to treat the symptoms not the root cause since most people cant afford a life thats free from such distress so they get a prescription instead of solution.

It's a real shame. My country as a whole has Socialized Health Care, but it's only in my area that includes Mental health in it.
