Message 1 of 1
For any family dealing with mental health issues, there is a lot to learn about diagnosing, treating, and living with mental health problems. Our system currently has two distinctly  separate professional groups , psychiatrists, and psychologists, who deal with mental health problems. And, paying for care for those with mental health problems is especially difficult. Families with means can get the best professionals, and get help in treatments, and chronic care. Those who are less fortunate sometimes  their loved ones are placed  behind bars, where their illness is not cared for, or even recognized.
But, there are some hopeful discoveries and treatments that may help these patients and their families:

Have you found any new treatments for your loved ones who have mental health problems?
What has been your experience in dealting with this difficult issue? Were you able to find help quickly, or , did it take years to locate the proper treatment?
