Hi @mc_m. I’m very sorry to hear about your little brother.

This forum itself has a wealth of information, but you have to dig through the different threads. I am a recent member and spend a lot of time doing searches on various situations that I am dealing with as I try to help my son who is struggling with psychosis.

Following advice found here, I have joined the local branch of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Through my local branch, I have signed up for a virtual class aimed at helping care givers and taking place in September. I’ve also joined their support group and will be attending the first virtual meeting in early August.

I hope that you find the resources that you need to help your brother and yourself.
