Episode 19: Mental Health – What We Live Through
My son has suffered from schizophrenia & bipolar disorder since his teens, he’s now 41.
We’ve lived through the heart-wrenching agony of his bad decisions, guns, arrests & homelessness.
We have spent sleepless nights wondering… worrying. For years every time we watched the evening news we’ve cringed while waiting for the description of suspected shooters, robbers, and other criminals.
We never know ‘what could have been’, the tragedies averted, the avoidance of devastation that could have been wreaked… what we do know, WHAT I DO KNOW is, treatment for mental health issues is difficult… and it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY! Not only is it necessary from a compassionate moral perspective it is necessary from a public safety perspective.
