Can an absence of faith be the cause of mental illness?

    No. It cannot.

    Having said that, an absence of faith *can* make some things an awful lot more difficult to accept. Questions that those of faith can answer quickly and simply will be questions that remain unanswered for those without a theological belief.

    Then again, for those who cannot rationalize this type of faith, trying to have that faith can be even more damaging again.

    Great question – a tough one in some ways, but NO – an absence of faith does NOT cause mental illness. The worries that can surround it can exacerbate mental illness though.
