Advice for caregivers #1

How to Live with a Mentally Ill Person - Written by the mother of a schizophrenic daughter, this is a good resource for those dealing with a mentally ill relative. It gives detailed advice on day to day matters such as medicine compliance, suicide threats, anger, bizarre behavior, and more. But is also discusses emotions that the caregiver him/hersolf goes through and suggests concrete steps that can be taken to alleviate some of the most common problems that caretakers face. Another plus is its helpful appendices on resources and its substantial bibliography.
