Hi there.
Looking for any support/advice/help anyone can offer as sister is mentally ill, being looked after by parents who are in 90% state of denail of how bad she is, won't entertain the idea of putting her in hospital for proper help, get no support from our local mental health team or NHS for that matter, having to pay for private shrink which hasn't achieved much, still no official diagnosis for her etc etc...

Not sure what to type, which forum to post in so any help would be warmly received! Lol

Hey, @MaxD1976, just want to welcome you to the forum and say I'm really sorry you all are going through this. Family members wanting to get help for someone w MH issues is a common issue on here, and one that is so hard to tackle. I hope you get some good advice from people who have been through this. Again, wish you the best of luck with this and people will be chiming in over time with hopefully some good advice. xx

Hi @MaxD1976

Can you tell us more about what is happening and how you think we might be able to help?

Does your sister want some more support? and if so, what sort of support would she like?

Hi.

I can go into it but it would be a LONG post! Better to do it all in one or separate parts to it?

Thanks to all of you so far for offering to help or even just listen!
Xxxxx

How bout writing a more detailed introduction to the situation and then expanding as the conversation develops. Sometimes when people write really long posts they don't get as many replies because the amount of information overwhelms people.
