Family and Caregiver Schizophrenia Discussion Forum

A great facebook website for an advocate for schizophrenia

This is a great website. Melanie Jimenez writes about her son with schizophrenia. As for my our own situation.
My daughter was hospitalized two times when she was only 12 years old. She saw things as early as four years old that concerned me. I kept bringing it up to doctors but always got the “childhood imaginary friends” talks. She too was misdiagnosed as bipolar and the meds made the symptoms even worse. She has had problems with the law since she was 17 years old and has been on probation for the majority of her life since then. She is now 32 and again we await another trial. I hired a lawyer to help fight for her to be hospitalized and for the first time to be truly evaluated instead of going to jail. I just pray the judge has a heart for this illness and helps us get the help she needs.
