My brother is high functioning, he knows how to play the system and appear normal when police or doctors are in front of him. I can never get him admitted. He refuses to take his medication and his delusions are getting worse everyday because he doesn’t have the right treatment. Hes so scared all the time.
I was told about a new AOT , outpatient treatement program, but all of them request hospitalization dates or arrests.
Why does the system want mentally ill patients to get violent before they give them treatment?
Why wont they take my phone recordings/videos/textmessages into account?
How do I work the system? I need to find help for my brother asap. Why should I sit around and wait until he gets suicidal? he believes they are physically harming him, and now he has pneumonia and he wont take the antibiotics. Like how sick does he have to get for me to get him help?
I hate being helpless.
