Family and Caregiver Schizophrenia Discussion Forum

Fortunate Mother


Continuing the discussion from The Fortunate Mother: Caring for a son with schizophrenia:


Laura Pogliano is an excellent mother (Sadly, her son passed away.) and activist:


This mom is out there as an advocate - and it was just in Baltimore that a mentally ill woman was discharged from a hospital to the out of doors at night while only wearing socks and a hospital gown.

We are not making any progress.



In the young woman’s story, I think the hospital’s terrible actions are hospital policy and the people carrying out hospital policy got caught on camera. There is no way security guards would do that without being told to do so.


It’s exactly what that was - hospital policy - they can dance around and try to hide it, we know the reality.
