no.....your thing even says "Any of various conditions characterized by impairment of an individual's normal cognitive....." that would mean that they wernt born mentally challenged but were made that way, and only physical means make someone mentally challlenged, and then they are like that for the rest of their lives

look at it: mental illness/ menatlly challenged

illness means "A disease"
a disease means: an impairment of the normal state of the living animal or plant body or one of its parts that interrupts or modifies the performance of the vital functions

this proves that a mental illness is a temporary disease that interrupts health, will return to normal


mentally challenged: a euphemism for mentally retarded or disabled
mentally retarded:people who are mentally retarded
helpful....lets try disabled: deprived of capability or effectiveness, especially impaired the physical abilities of
lets check deprive: To keep from possessing or enjoying; deny

so therefore mentaly challenged peoples have had the possesion of mind regularity impaired. permently

where as a illness is fixable. mental retardedness is untreatable.
