Hi. my brother died when he was 24 and he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. We believe it was a suicide. My other brother reminded me of my passed away brother. He is now always unexcited and fearful. He told me that when he was in the university his whole class including his teacher were testing him and evaluating his sanity because he was different (race, political views, etc.). I actually believed him and we suggested that he comes back home and he did. He had a car accident noting major happened. He is ok, but he thinks the accident was planned so “those people” can go into his brain. Sometimes he thinks that because he is so smart and a very good speaker (he is) that “those people” want to stop him from a mission. Sometimes he is suspicious of me which really hurts because I’m the closest to him. He just broke up with his GF which he loves so much because he doesn’t trust her.
I don’t know what to do since he hates topics about mental illness and psychiatry. Before all that, all he talked about was my brother and how we couldn’t help him because were ignorant about schizophrenia and we both regretted our actions. I don’t want to do the same mistake again! I want to help my brother.What should I do? I know he would not go to see a psychiatrist. Please help me.
