How to help my adult son with a mental breakdown
Today my heart is so heavy for my son. He has been through so much this year and has reached the breaking point. He is a 42 year old gay man whose marriage has just ended. Covid restrictions of isolation forced him out of work 7 months ago and he was unable to find other work in his area. This caused other problems too. He accepted a job on the opposite coast, moved into an affordable apartment with 3 roommates who he didn't know. On day #2 he had a mental breakdown and was taken to a psychiatric hospital. He maintains an amicable relationship with his partner. He is a 5 hour drive from my husband and me and he is welcome to come to our home until he is able to start again. We live in a very small town with limited mental health services. I'm not sure how to offer help to him.
