Thank you for bringing such a misunderstood topic to light. This country has a terrible system set up for mental health patients. Most people don’t realize this until it affects someone they love. As a daughter of a man who has suffered from depression his entire life, I know the struggle that this mother goes through. I applaud her for bringing her son to the hospital. When you are in that situation, it’s the most difficult decision to make but it’s the best option. All the people on here, saying how terrible of a mother she is for bringing her child there, have no idea. It’s clearly more serious than a behavioral issue. If ever a day comes, when they have to help take all the guns/knives out of the house and bring a loved one to the hospital because they are threatening suicide, they will finally understand the issue at hand in the article. The health care system needs to be reformed to better assist people suffering from mental illnesses.
