Family and Caregiver Schizophrenia Discussion Forum

“Won’t you be my neighbour?” Psychosis and violent reoffending: does where you live matter?

I’m always concerned when my son is “placed” in the community that is in rough neighborhoods with high crime and drug dealing.

He has been evicted and brought to the hospital more times than I can count.

When he’s lucid, he pleads with me to help him not go back to “those people on the street” (drug dealers)

I miss him so much, and am scared to death of him turning violent.
