My grandson has paranoid schizophrenia. He is willing to get help but no one will see him since he has no photo ID and refuses to get his picture taken. We have asked mental health facilities and doctor offices what to do. They don’t know but they wont see him. It makes no sense. He’s sliding into a crisis and no one will help him get the right meds or at least monitor what the hospital gave him. The hospital doesn’t want him back. They say just take him to a psychiatrist. we are trying but they won’t see him without the photo ID. It’s like a dog chasing its tail. His mom has a Power of Attorney for him but none of the doctor’s offices are willing to take that. Social Security accepted it. The bank accepted it to open him an account but the people who are supposed to be helping him get better won’t accept it!
My daughter goes to the NAMI classes but no one there knows the answer either. So for right now he has stopped taking his regular meds that won’t stop the voices. He wasn’t sleeping so his primary care dr gave him Seraquil to sleep. Now he’s misusing that so he sleeps all the time. We need to get him to a psychiatrist. How do we do that without the picture ID?
