Thanks hatty that is so positive to hear that Now your son actually can realise his delusions wereren real, That must be so uplifting for you.
Yes my son was “sectioned” twice and as you say, not for major incidents either, our gp and menatal health team really took into,account how his delusions , behaviours affected his dad and me.
He was non compliant and first time was in hospital for three weeks, walked out with no meds etc, eight months later he was back on again and after two weeks refusing meds was told he would have to take them. He was discharged after five months. He stayed on depot for 15 months but now been on ariprorazole tablets for four weeks. Pleased to hear your son is doing well.
Mostly his diagnosis was non specified psychosis , now it’s delusional disorder. Wonder if we had been in the USA would it be a straight diagnosis of schizophrenia .
