I agree that there is no help for family members who have someone in there family with mental illness. I have been told by doctors, police that I should run with my children because there was nothing they could do until he tried to kill himself or someone else,like me or my kids.I have lived over ten years of my life trying to get help for my exhusband. He was abusive to me and our children. When I went to get help they would just shut the door on use tell that there was nothing they could do for me.
He has been in and out of court systems and mental institution He is currently in Franklin County jail facing charges of assult for beating an elderly woman with two boards that came off the door frame that he kick in to get to her. When will people finally step up and stop this madness. How many more chainsaw.Virgina tech.killings.are going to happen before we get helpfor them. Are we the victims or are they the victims of no help.
