When I went into the JET program in Japan (1991), I had to submit an official statement in my application package written by a psychologist. I was interviewed and given a stress test along with other mental health questionnaires. I passed.

I do not think it was a bundle of laughs for S....... E............... or his dependants. Mental health "issues" are common in KSA and are not always well-handled by the authorities.

Difficult to say if KSA attracts people prone to psychiatric problems, or if these problems are caused by life in an Islamic society as an outsider.

Those whon come here in pursuit of the Great God Mammon should be aware that they may lose their sanity in the Kingdom.

...a tad sensitive about your mental health? If you have no 'issues' ...why so defensive? As generalities go, no one is really exempt when it comes to defining normal/ abnormal mental health...I'd venture to say as part of the human rat race...it goes with the territory...but perhaps measuring by degrees you may convince yourself that you are better off or worse off than the other guy?
People that try to convince others they are 'normal' are the ones to watch out for Laughing
Go create your own shoe throwing video.
