Carried out by Slate Star Codex, the survey gathered a wealth of data from respondents about their education, religious, demographic, lifestyle and political views.
The results indicated that people who occupy the far left of the political spectrum are the most likely to have been “formally diagnosed with depression, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia.”
The results also indicate that the highest percentage of respondents (38%) who admit to being diagnosed with forms of mental illness also identify politically as “Marxists.”
In contrast, just 12.1% of conservatives say they have been diagnosed with a mental illness.
