Knowing how to help a family member with mental illness requires knowledge about the mental illness, the mental health system, and insight into your family member’s personal situation.
Last night, I received another e-mail cry for help from a reader.
“I began reading “Ben Behind his Voices” last night and have barely put it down. Our son seems to be following Ben’s track. We don’t know what to do. Any suggestions?”
I wish I had all the answers.
