I read that article earlier today and found it very moving. It really highlights how much families struggle to get that support, which leads to tragedies like what happened the other day.

I’m from Australia, but our system for dealing with mental illness is, sadly, very similar. I work with homeless youth, and many of them struggle to access support services until they’ve got a criminal record – there are some services aimed specifically at early intervention for young people, but it’s still woefully inadequate.

I saw that article on Facebook…I truly hope it gives everyone a little perspective on mental illness and recognizing the signs in their own loved ones that might be present…perhaps if his mother had recognized that early enough, the whole tragedy could have been prevented.
