I'll continue this post to say that. Society is in denial of M.I.. That is why when it strikes an individual ie. a family, the system doesn't work to our advantage. There is a law here that if an individual is a danger to himself and/or others he may be admitted to a crisis center. This law is subject to interpretation by police and sometimes a person (under 16) may need to go to a crisis center but there is no way to get him there. I was told by the head of Nami that they had to leave their own son outside a crisis center and drive away at night time, so that he could be admitted and get treatment. (This Stinks! I mean having to virtually abandon your child in order to get treatment) There needs to be legislation in every state as well as the Fed. government to help people get treatment more easily and be able to receive the proper medications without spending their last dollar on them.
