"I had to press charges against my son..."

“I am unable to do anything for my son now because as an 18-year-old, he is considered legally responsible for himself. I see him often wandering my neighborhood, wearing bedroom slippers, walking around wide-eyed and confused. Hopeless.

I had to press criminal charges against my son in hopes of getting treatment.”

- op-ed in the Atlanta Journal Constitution in which a mother describes her struggle to get treatment for her son who has a severe mental illness
