WOW >>> what a jump from support group to consumer… I created my account as I am a mature adult crying like a lil baby confused and crippled to a point of irrational though at the time. BRADFORD -You were not there. Government -not there, web sites not there.. MYSELF and a half dozen other parents questioned the book dailly and rationalized every step. NAMI WAS a god sent. I TOLD them I TOO has reservations on (( one)) drug my son was given that once taken it limited other drug choices. WE ALL MADE the best choices we could with out information, education , support and a group that gave us access to other in similar situations. UNTREATED Mental illness killed my sons two best friends in the last 1 1/2 years as self medication is alway the next best cure and usually fatal. THERE IS NO one right answer here. I follow no one blind . I AM learning, educating past NAMI , with NAMI , internet, books , and my son best hope . NAMI SHOWED me I am not alone and taught me to move forward . IT IS MY burdon and chose as the last hope for my son… THE system is broke.. The only money going into the field is PARMA,,, PLEASE search learn and discover.. groups, orgs. national mental health agencies , SAMHDA, NIMH , National mental health services, Healthzone and be educated.
