StacyP: I have a 19 year old son who suffers from chronic depression, among other things, and requires medication and regular counseling to keep at bay the demons that urge him to hurt himself. When his doctors told me a year ago that he was responsible for his own treatment from then on I was devastated. Fortunately for me, my son has not decided to deviate from “the plan”, but I recognize that could happen at any time, for any reason. The doctors wished me luck (and a good lawyer) when it does because that's what it takes to get someone hopsitalized for mental illness these days. Sad, sad times.
Question: Are you dealing with a friend or loved one who has a serious mental health problem?
