Serious mental illness is complex, the mental health treatment system in the U.S. is fragmented, and families often feel like their child's future has been overlooked. Sometimes families need help navigating urgent or complex decisions for a loved one in need of mental health treatment.
To quote today's special guest, Virgil Stucker, "Whether your family member is 20 or 62, we want to know: what are their hopes and dreams for the future? Effective and compassionate treatment can help your family member learn how to manage their mental illness so that they can begin to build their future once again. We help families identify and access treatment options based on best fit for the person of concern."
Virgil uses his 30 years of experience in the mental health field to help those in need access the best care possible, helping them plan for and achieve sustainable recovery for them or their family member. He wants you to know that you are not alone and that there IS hope for recovery.
