Here, in Canada, we have a much better health care system, but the mentally ill people still seem to fall through the cracks. They commit mostly petty crimes and are shuffled through the court system. If their families have no funds to seek private treatment for them, then it becomes a useless cycle between the courts and detox.
I agree with you. I will soon have a book written that will address that very problem. And how to head PTSD. I won't be out for a few months yet.
first of all they deny it.... then there is reticence
IM SORRY i didnt read the whole question, my answer is not appropriate. do you mind if i delete it?
I live in AU which arguably has a better system. But it's still not really that great.
Don't know - a few get shot by the police it would seem.
Dont think many know how to help but they could start with a drop in centre to go where a person can talk to trained. Advisors somewhere they can go to have a chat to people who actually care.
