My 20 yr old son has a mental illness

I would like to talk with others who are living with a family member who is suffering from psychosis, bi-polar or schizo-typol. These are some of the terms that have come up over the last three years, since my sons first psychotic episode.
But at this time he remains undiagnosed.

This is so stressful for all of us in house, (my17 year old daughter) and the fight for appropriate care plus the constant worry over the possibility of his suicide is beating me down.

I have looked for a board that has this conversation ongoing but as yet I can't find you.

Hello, where are you?

Re: My 20 yr old son has a mental illness

My son who is now 25 was labeled schizo effective..I have had a very hard time of it with him since he was a young child and still am.
