Same person, Dr. Sederer gave this talk in the video, “When Mental Illness Enters the Family” with four main approaches:
(These are NOT the four secrets that are in the blog post, but four additional good ideas…)

  1. Don’t go it alone. There are people and places to turn to.
  2. Don’t get into fights.
  3. Learn how the mental health system works. Learn its rules and how to bend them.
  4. Remember, you’re on more of a marathon than a sprint.

I think these, combined with the “four secrets hiding in plain sight” that the new book is about are really excellent advice. They are in the blog post…

Thank you for posting @firemonkey and @Sparrow
