You may be interested in this new article. As I mentioned earlier, it points to the possible/potential issues of Essential Fats, not cholesterol.

The field of omega-3 fatty acid deficiencies as reversible risk factors in major psychiatric disorders has flourished in the last decade. Treatment recommendations of the American Psychiatric Association may be considered
for application to more normative states of psychiatric health. Considered here is the proposition that an increased risk of personality disorders, and an increased sense of despair in normative populations, might be considered
as symptoms of deficiencies of omega-3 fatty acids. The major changes in the essential fatty acid composition of the food supply, including increased
availability of the omega-6 linoleic acid, may be correlated not only with increased risks of homicide, but also increased risks of suicide and
suboptimal social cohesion.
