Mental health treatment while incarcerated

Posted by lissu @lissu, Apr 11 12:27pm

I have given up trying to help my adult son who is manic, suicidal, and having delusions of demons in his isolated jail cell. He is not allowed any communication with us or anyone “until his behavior improves “. As far as I know he is not receiving any treatment. I have tried every channel I can think of to get information on his condition. In my opinion he should be hospitalized, not jailed. I’m not really looking for any advice, just a sympathetic ear.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Mental Health Support Group.

@lissu, this must be so hard. You love your son. What you describes sounds like it would only make his situation worse. You have my sympathetic ear. I'm listening.
