Katherine Dering | 6 comments Hi, Stephanie. I am so glad you have come through it.
My brother was not as lucky. Despite all the doctors, social workers etc. we tried to connect him to, and who said they were treating him, he never recovered. I wrote about it from the family's perspective, how we tried to help but were powerless, his occasional moments or days of near sanity and happiness, etc.

Shot in the Head, a Sister's Memoir, a Brother's Struggle. My book was published by Bridgeross - a small publisher who has published several books by or about people with SMI.

Best of luck to you.

Stephanie Allen (stephanieanneallen) | 30 comments Wow! I am extremely sad that this happened to you, your brother, and your entire family. My book may be able to give you some insight into what a mentally ill person goes through. I would love to read your book also. I will add it. God bless you for having the strength to write a book from the family's perspective. I wish you continued success with your book. When was it published?

Katherine Dering | 6 comments The book was published in 2014. This is me reading from a chapter about how the state psychiatric people abandoned the ones who were the sickest. They were tossed out of the hospitals, and then not given the community care they needed.
