Fellow mom in the trenches

My 21 year-old son is currently in denial with his schizophrenia. He’s already been arrested twice and homeless in New York. Thank you for this podcast because it helps me feel less alone. I wish it wouldn’t be so hard to get my son help when it feels like homelessness or jail is inevitable for him. But I have the support of a community like this podcast! It gives me hope. And we can’t lose hope.

Such a fabulous podcast

I am a mother in the trenches as well. I just “happened “ upon this podcast while googling something about schizophrenia. This podcast has made me feel both broken open and healed with all the emotions I have in dealing with an adult child with this horrendous illness. I facilitate a NAMI group and will definitely pass this on to other parents “in the trenches”. Thank you so much

Excellent resources and camaraderie

I’m a psychiatrist in Los Angeles who works with patients with SMI and psychiatry residents. Since a fellow psychiatrist recommended it to me, I recommend this to family members of individuals with SMI and psych residents. Thank you, Randye, Mimi and Mindy, for this amazing project!
