Hi Jerry,

Sorry to hear about your son. It doesn’t sound like his treatment is going that well - Have you shared the information you’ve shared with us with his psychiatrist?

He might be able to get some medication adjustment and also he needs therapy. Are those available in your area?

I recommend you join your local NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) - go to this website and scroll down a big to find your local NAMI office and then call them and describe your problems. NAMI is a support group for families in our situation:

You can contact a lawyer to write a trust for your son so he can get a Certain amount monthly after your demise.
you can also Contact a banker to hold the trust. your Son should also get benefits like : Social security Disability and Medicare.

I would try to convince him to apply for SSD. Hope he get some sort of treatment.

but I least he is not aggressive.

.My son is under the treatment for Chronic Schizophrenic for a prolong period and every two months he will meet the psychiatrist (he is an old patient of NIMHANS -Bangalore-India and presently he is under the treament in SCARF Chennai-India.(You can find the full details in their sites -if you are in need to know more). presently he is calm and don’t show any violence …but his earning attitude is nil ,and he is depended on me.
And true to say on “Holy Sprit” and more in Bible Reading. .
