I noticed that the Dr has also written a book (you can see it on the left side of the stage). After checking online, the title is "Family Guide to Mental Health Care" by Dr L Sederer. Our local library has a copy so will borrow and study.

We started out with a few pamphlets, online search results of varying quality and snippets of information from mental health staff. It was only after finding a decent book that the puzzle pieces started to come together. We were dealing with something completely new and mystifying but some of these authors have dealt with hundreds of cases. Good books have been helpful to understanding the illness and putting some of the day-to-day issues into perspective.
