My adult son, age 41, lives with me. He's been depressed for the last 5 years and unable to work so he relies on me. He will not seek mental health assistance because he's scared. His Grandmother, his father, and his uncle are all bipolar. Only his uncle was diagnosed. I know my son and I'm scared for him. I have tried to get him see a mental health doctor and he gets mad at me. We have talked about it in the past and he knows he needs help and now he says he's crazy. He said he won't take any meds. Currently, his anger management is effecting when he drives and I'm scared. I've seen road aggression recently. I don't know what to do!! I'm becoming so depressed I cannot function at times. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Should I find a therapist for myself and maybe he will want to go? How do I help him???
