My son is in crisis. He is acting out of character. Been telling his GP for months he is not well, but nothing has been done.
I had to keep phoning the police to get into his house, as he’s not communicating with anyone. The police have been good but can’t do anything without the doctor. I rang the RAID team, but they are not taking me seriously. They didn’t return the call and haven’t done anything. No help has been offered.
I’m shocked at how little help there is to try and get care for family when they need it.
