Art and madness

I read somewhere that people with artistic temperaments suffer from higher rates of depression and mental illness. At the moment I'm feeling rather blue myself (though that might have something to do with the gloomy weather that has descended over New York...)

Still...Van Gogh, Cobain, Robert E. Howard...the list of creative types with battalions of inner demons is a long one. Which begs the question; is a healthy imagination bad for your health?
