Mum with Mental Health issues

Postby forty » Mon Oct 08, 2018 9:37 pm


I am new here. Just wanted to get some support on my current situation.
My mum is mentally ill and has been for some time now, she was sectioned this year and diagnosed. I am one of six children and it has been a very traumatic and draining experience for all of us. She was discharged during the summer and we started to see a drastic improvement but a month or two in she started worrying about things, such as bills, food, heating etc.
I had to stop the bailiffs today from repossessing her belongings whilst at work and I just found it all very overwhelming and stressful. I can't help but be angry and shout her at times because she is not thinking rationally at times. I feel bad and just helpless now, she has a care co-ordinator who hasn't been very proactive. My mum is given medication every two weeks but that's it, I would have thought some counselling sessions or activities would help her recovery. I don't see a lot of support out there for people.

Is anyone going through anything similar or can offer some advice?
