Rick and Morty & Mental Illness.

 

“While Morty’s psychology isn’t quite as dark as Rick’s, it isn’t untouched by the revels of mental illness either.

Consider his endless fright at what could be around the next corner, and how quickly he escalates to panic in any stressful situation, and his unhealthy basket of neuroses begins to make itself immediately clear”
