Read This Book NOW: Because We Do Care

No One Cares About Crazy People https://a.co/d/5Qc6p5C

First recommended by @RishI (I think). I can’t put it down. Hopefully it will speak to your soul in this shared, tragic experience.

The Preface alone (free in the Sample!) is so powerful. Maybe it’s just misplaced optimism but I feel a wave rising of trying to improve mental health care in the US. IMHO, we don’t have a gun-control, or homelessness, or drug-addiction problem, we have a failure to appropriately address mental health issues.

Don’t know if I have the energy to help fix due to our daily grind of living it - but praying/hoping for meaningful change. Big love to my Caregiver Crew!!!

This book looks great! I love hearing from the family care giver perspective. I agree with you. There seems to be new interest in efforts to improve mental health care. Also, people are becoming much more open about it now.

Thanks @Sando for sharing this book!

I agree- it is a poignant book that exposes our messed up system. I wonder if anyone reads it besides people like us though…
