How does a parent help their teen who refuses to get help and won’t speak to a professional when schizophrenia is a suspicion ? I do not want to wait until she has a severe episode. I am the only one my daughter has told and she doesn’t believe she has a problem. She said it’s all that she knows….seeing ghosts, hearing voices, smelling things others don’t. She has been going through alot of anxiety lately and I’m fearful she will get worse.
I contacted NAMI and they said to come to their workshops. I want a diagnosis so we can get her treated!! What is a parent to do??
How do I convince her she needs help?
