Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are often found in highly creative and intelligent people

Genius and insanity may actually go together, according to scientists who found that mental illnesses like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are often found in highly creative and intelligent people.” Let’s critically evaluate this statement. There is research that indicates a link between creativity and mental health; however, there is also research that suggests the opposite. So, what do you think? Given the numerous examples of creative geniuses and their reported mental health status, do you think that those who are superintelligent are more likely to possess a psychological disorder? Review King’s “Is there a link between creative genius and psychopathology?” p 266. Support your comments with at least 3 research articles that have been published in peer-reviewed research journals.
