Welcome to the forum @AnaBear
Perhaps the first site I would recommend is the main site for this forum:
A lot of links on this page. Check out First Aid for Schizophrenia and Frequently Asked Questions.
These sites have helped me a lot:
http://www.leapinstitute.org/ - under resources are free videos on using LEAP
LEAP is a way of communicating to build trust. Listen-Empathize-Agree-Partner.
http://dramador.com/ - Dr. Xavier Amador is a clinical psychologist whose brother had schizophrenia. He is the founder of the LEAP Institute. Wrote the book: I’m Not Sick I Don’t Need Help! Can buy from his website.
Search Xavier Amador and LEAP on youtube.com and you should find some long videos
http://www.treatmentadvocacycenter.org/index.php - under problems you will see anosognosia
Anosognosia looks like denial but is different.
http://lesswrong.com/lw/e25/bayes_for_schizophrenics_reasoning_in_delusional/ - helped my understand delusions
http://www.nami.org/ - National Alliance on Mental Illness.
http://www.schizophrenia.ca/ - Schizophrenia Society of Canada
Getting him into an early treatment program should be looked into. The help and understanding I received through my son’s early intervention program helped me a lot.
Early Psychosis Treatment center information in these two links
Psychiatric Treatment Centers affiliated with Medical Schools in the USA
This link may help you find a psychiatrist in your area
How do we cope? We all cope differently however we do it because we need to. Yes at times it is overwhelming but we have each other, here, and that makes a big difference.
