appreciate your point. that said, as a medical social worker i see the the more severe the mental illness, the less likely it is that a person has insight, and more likely it is that they tend to decline to take psychotropic meds. unfortunately i don't have research on this but it's widely understood amongst my colleagues that people with serious mental illness will likely decline to start/ continue psychotropic medications. they don't see the need.
