My mom has Schizophrenia and has been sectioned and admitted to a mental health hospital 3 times over the last 8-10 years, and she has had many relapses.
She currently has been off her meds for the last year but slowly getting worse and worse again, (Talking to people who are not there, saying there are demons in me and other family members, not sleeping, will not leave the house or let anyone in to the house etc) I am very very worried about her and it seems to be a cycle now, where she will be on meds for a year or two, come off them, be okay for a bit and then get really bad again, and then she ends up back in hospital again.
At this point i’m really not sure what to do, she will not take meds, she will not see a doctor, she refuses help from anyone, will not talk to anyone and says life is not worth living among other things which i find very worrying.
I wanted to ask advice from other people in this position and what they do to help??
I also live abroad which makes it harder.
