"... I'll be OK."

That's what I sad to my Dad over the phone
one time when I was experiencing heavy
symptoms and had to go to a Hospital several
miles away (rather than the usual local one).

And although it was another difficult time,
eventually I was OK. And I think that applies
to the vast majority of People.

Like I mentioned before, when you're
experiencing symptoms (etc.) it doesn't seem
like anything will get better of improve ...

When, really, it pretty much always does. By
the way, that was an adaptation of Susan
Jeffers' ("Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway")
affirmation:

"Whatever happens I'll handle it."

Just choose whichever one you find more helpful.

HTH.

P.S.
Sorry for the spelling mistakes. The top should read "That's what I said ..." (Not "sad" Lol)

I feel for your father easier because I am passing through the same emotions as he does. I think I have done one thing right since my son experienced the psychotic episode: I’ve been told by his therapist to stop trying to solve a medical issue and just be a parent. At first I was annoyed, very annoyed, but within a few weeks I stopped showing my despair and panic to him and started doing things with him, show him love, etc. I think it mattered quite a lot since he is on a better path now, even if he takes meds, etc.
