My son started his journey with mental illness 15 years ago and so did our family.
I am exhausted but I still step up in times of crisis I don’t have a choice.
He gets lots of support from NDIS but I wish there was some crisis support other than hospital ( which never helps) .
I recently had to cut short a holiday to come and help him, in the interim I called on a friend to call in on him and make sure he was safe this was very confronting for them and I don’t want to ask again does anyone know of a service that would offer this sort of support.

Doesn't it always seem that when we try to have a break something inevitably happens? 😬
In some states there are some private hospitals that offer mental health crisis response @Any but where I live CATT/ public system is only option.

I know someone who gets a daily call from Red Cross. They may be worth it if they are local.
