Mental illness affects more than just the person who is diagnosed.
Friends, family, and other loved ones often share in the worry,
fear, and frustration that comes with coping with a mental illness.
when someone close to you displays the signs of a mental illness,
it is unclear how to help them. This section will give you some
information about warning signs of mental illness, and information
on how to care
for yourself, the caregiver.
If you believe your loved one may be suffering from a mental illness,
please consult our Finding Help and
Resources page for a listing of mental health professionals and organizations in your local area
that can help.
