The Official Blog for Mental Health Project

I started blogging about my journey as a caregiver to my son who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia as a way to deal with my own emotions. I still do it for this reason however I also want to share my story with others so that they know they are not alone. Caring for someone with a mental illness can be hard. It can be isolating and it can be overwhelming at the best of times.

So much research to do on medications and treatment options. Let's not forget diet, behavior issues and how to be a better parent... Because we don't already feel enough guild as we watch our loved ones suffer and feel hopeless to stop the symptoms of a disease that doesn't allow our loved ones to see how much we love them.

I want to share mine and my son's story and help others to share theirs.
