I can't recall any demon possessed people in the bible who die, is there? If this is in any way related to a real case, please go and see a pastor or someone similar for more information and counselling. I think that's a pretty close definition of "crazy".
The difference is that God punished him with this mental state. Clearly by observing some people mental problems, in the Bible, even if only temporary, they existed.
Why else would Judas have committed suicide if he had not become so fully brought under depression and a sense of doom? Even in the Old Testament we can see that people generally understood the idea of a person who had mental illness. To avoid trouble for example David pretended to have an extreme mental illness: David took these words to heart and was very much afraid of Achish king of Gath.
So he pretended to be insane in their presence; and while he was in their hands he acted like a madman, making marks on the doors of the gate and letting saliva run down his beard. NIV 1 Samuel Immediately what had been said about Nebuchadnezzar was fulfilled. He was driven away from people and ate grass like the ox.
His body was drenched with the dew of heaven until his hair grew like the feathers of an eagle and his nails like the claws of a bird. At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored.
In any case Jesus directly cast out many demons as part of his ministry and sometimes mental illness and other diseases were was associated with demonic possession and sometimes not. The Bible therefore clearly distinguishes, between natural mental illness and demonic mental illness.
News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and he healed them. However this does not mean that on occasion this is still the cause of mental problems.
I have close relationships with people who provide full time pastoral care for Christians and I can assure you many people including Christians suffer mental illness.
Many that can be cured, or at least helped by drugs prescribed by doctors, and some, although possibly rare, are also struggling with demons.
To distinguish between the two, when scriptures are quoted in relation to the problems a demoniac is suffering, there is a violent reaction to the word of God, but those who are just depressed, or bi-polar, etc.
Of course typically a worrying depressed by-polar, might worry that they are possessed, even while sincerely seeking God and the scriptures, and the scriptures must then be used to reassure them that such is not the case! If they are believing in Christ and cannot possibly be confessing his name by faith if they were demon possessed.

Either way, there is a book I would recommend much better than any post, which honestly deals with the subject, written by a famous English preacher who was also, in a previous career, a respected medical doctor! Anyone seriously interested in the subject, or those who are in the medical or counseling field would do well to study it.
I also speak with some authority on this subject, as I am one of those rare people who did suffer demonic possession and upon believing in Christ was completely and instantly healed, thirty years ago.
I also know dear Christian friends who need medicine for mental deficiencies. Some are able to wean themselves off, and others that are not, depending on the condition. That would be to provide great offence to God!
Such people can have very great and impressive faith while struggling with very difficult problems and can be an example to us who enjoy such an easy life in terms of being able to cope in a career and raise our families without having our whole world collapse around us now and again. Thankfully God is able to reach those people and take them out from under the pit, praise his holy name forevermore.
As a former demoniac I certainly had a lot of emotional problems to contend with for many years after becoming a Christian. This post is very dear to me own heart. I would only add one caution to the subject.
The uncontrollable desire to sin which the world suffers and atheistic psychologists and psychiatrists might pretend to manage compared to their Christian counterparts using biblical principles should not be diagnosed as a 'mental illness' requiring therapy and or medication.
For example, I was a kleptomaniac from the age of six until sixteen, the difference was simply that I was delivered from a life of sin through simple faith in Christ. Most of our generic mental ills are just the ills of sin, which require nothing more than repentance and faith in Christ, followed by a total intent of surrendering our life over to him and his word, both internally and externally.Jul 29, · JERUSALEM - An Israeli newspaper's decision to publish a handwritten prayer left by Barack Obama in the cracks of Jerusalem's Western Wall drew criticism Friday as an invasion of his privacy and his relationship with God.
