The mental health of religious people is better than spiritual people but not better than atheists.
A new study by Faculty of Brain Sciences, University College London Medical School says, spiritual people are more likely to develop a mental disorder, become dependent on drugs and have eating disorders.
It says, spiritual but not religious people are more likely to suffer from “any neurotic disorder,” “mixed anxiety/depressive disorders” or “depression” than their religious counterparts. Overall, 19% of spiritual respondents said they suffered from a neurotic disorder, while 15% of religious respondents responded the same way.
We should not forget about another study that says, intelligent people less likely to believe in God.
So, the conclusion is, intelligent people do not believe in God and non-religious and non-spiritual people are having better mental health than religious and spiritual people.
