How can I help my brother who is a schitzophrenic?

My brother is 19 yrs old and was diagnosed w/ Schitzophrenia a yr ago. He lives 3 hours and none of his family back home wants to deal with him. He receives an SSI check and was going to get an apartment, but i'm scared for him to live alone. He talks about how he wants to see Jesus and I'm scared he is going to hurt himself. I was wondering do you know of any programs that can help? Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank You

  • Contact a mental health facility in his community and ask. He needs on his meds but should be ok. My cousin has it and when she is on her meds she's fine to live alone.
