I posted about my 23 y/o brother the other day.He has schizophreni/bipolar/depression/ADD. TO make a long story short, he has been having another psychotic episode. HE NEEDS HELP. But heres the catch, since he's an adult we can't MAKE him go to the hospital. They won't even come pick him up! I've tried setting him up to a mental health unit that I used to work at. Everything is good to go but he has to walk in willingly and sign himself in...how the heck do you convince a paranoid schizophrenic to do that?It makes no damn sense. He thinks everything is a conspiracy against him.He thinks he is fine..but in a schizophrenics fine, they ALL think they are fine and everyone else is out to get them. This is so damn frustrating.No wonder there are prisons filled with mentally incompetent people..they do nothing to help them and when they commiit a crime, they get tossed in jail.PLEASE...DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS?

I have a son with bipolar disorder and another son that has been a psych nurse. The first person the posted is right, you can get him committed for 72 hours. I think it takes 2 family members to do it. We are considering doing it right now with my son. He went off his meds and bought a Jeep (junk heap), didn't pay his bills, bought a bunch of other things and spent his savings and maxed out his credit cards, his job is in jeopardy, ect. He is back on his meds and we are monitoring him taking them and his money. If he doesn't start acting more normal we may have to do something.
