Star Wars Characters’ Mental Ilnesses

I am a huge Star Wars fan and mental health advocate.  The characters in The Force Awakens (I only saw it 7 times) displayed a depth of humanity that I hadn’t seen among many movies.  The characters had strengths and flaws which only made them more human.  Being a connoisseur of the DSM-V myself I saw many diagnostic criteria of the illnesses so many face in the movie.  Not that anyone should run around diagnosing people, rather recognizing the traits of the disorders many suffer from portrayed on the big screen.
