It's a mix of both, not sure of the proportions, but I agree as a society we rely to heavily on medications to fix everything. I also agree there isn't enough personal accountability. And the big wooden spoon mixing this concoction is parenting and in most cases seasoned (heavily) with upbringing and environment.
There isn't one easy cure, just as there isn't one big evil prognosticator. Awareness to mental health problems is more important than gun control if you ask me.
