  • Tojahn
This is a must read if you have a mentally ill person that is in your life. Gives you help on everyday things such as taking meds and refusal to take a bath. If you have a mentally ill person you take care of you know the hardship of dealing. The more you know how to deal with them and about their illness the better you are capable to handle it. I have a schizophrenic son and have found this book so valuable I bought it so I could always refer to it.
  • Monam
The book has many good things that I took away, however, I live with a son who is probably schizophrenic and so having the conversations with him that they suggest is not even remotely possible. And, most of the advice was about talking with them about things. Impossible when just looking at someone sets them off.
  • Burilar
The book was informative and there was information in the book that I did not know about. I would recommend anyone living with someone suffering from a mental illness to purchase this book. It will bring you comfort.
  • FireWater
This a great book to learn how to live the daily life with someone you love who suffers with this illness. My son has schizophrenia and sometimes I refer back to it to remind myself that they are not trying to be in your way. Its not there fault. Its helped me a lot. Good Luck!

Very insightful read.
  • Wishamac
A good book for family and friends of the mentally ill. Also, could be helpful to the patient as well.
  • Onetarieva
Even though this book is a little outdated, I loved it. The author provides some basic survival skills for families, and helps alleviate some of the guilt that is always carried by the families, especially the mothers, of a mentally ill child. Thank you!
Thank you, The book is very helpful.
