I'll repost excerpts of a blog that was in the mental illness, race & violence thread we had a few weeks ago. This woman's blog went viral with some telling her she aint ish, is a horrible mother, others empathizing

Quote I live with a son who is mentally ill. I love my son. But he terrifies me.

A few weeks ago, Michael pulled a knife and threatened to kill me and then himself after I asked him to return his overdue library books. His 7 and 9 year old siblings knew the safety plan—they ran to the car and locked the doors before I even asked them to. I managed to get the knife from Michael, then methodically collected all the sharp objects in the house into a single Tupperware container that now travels with me. Through it all, he continued to scream insults at me and threaten to kill or hurt me.

I am sharing this story because I am Adam Lanza’s mother. I am Dylan Klebold’s and Eric Harris’s mother. I am Jason Holmes’s mother. I am Jared Loughner’s mother. I am Seung-Hui Cho’s mother. And these boys—and their mothers—need help. In the wake of another horrific national tragedy, it’s easy to talk about guns. But it’s time to talk about mental illness

When I asked my son’s social worker about my options, he said that the only thing I could do was to get Michael charged with a crime. “If he’s back in the system, they’ll create a paper trail,” he said. “That’s the only way you’re ever going to get anything done. No one will pay attention to you unless you’ve got charges.”

I don’t believe my son belongs in jail. The chaotic environment exacerbates Michael’s sensitivity to sensory stimuli and doesn’t deal with the underlying pathology. But it seems like the United States is using prison as the solution of choice for mentally ill people. According to Human Rights Watch, the number of mentally ill inmates in U.S. prisons quadrupled from 2000 to 2006, and it continues to rise—in fact, the rate of inmate mental illness is five times greater (56 percent) than in the non-incarcerated population. (http://www.hrw.org/news/2006/09/05/us-number-mentally-ill-prisons-quadrupled)

God help me. God help Michael. God help us all.

The child would have to Want to be emancipated.  Parent and child must agree and I think the age is 16 for most states if not all.

Thanks for sharing that Zolloh...
 
That mother speaks the truth.  Prison is not equipped to help the mentally ill.  Once someone realize how lucrative it will be to keep the Mentally ill housed the facilities will start popping up all over the United States especially if the Govt fund it under regular old health insurance....sigh.

Can't he be committed to be a mental hospital? (I know they still exist because my relative was recently committed). He can be involuntarily committed.

What would make Dr. Phil think that?
 
Confused
 
Everyone with behavioral problems is not on the spectrum.
