I have written a few times, these past months have been difficult. My son has gotten off all his meds – he is only 18 and I feel so bad for him. Nothing seems to be working for him so he didnt want to take drugs anymore if they werent working anyway. He had tried severaal different ones. He is such a good young man but every day i worry for him. On Monday a school friend of his killed himself, was found dead in his dorm. I worry every day this could be him. He took a year off school and has basically stayed in his room and not much of anything else. He has been accepted to school in the fall but I worry he wont be able to handle it. I know he has to go and maybe it will help. But where I am now is that he is angry and depressed. He is now feeling he could get a job and do well but nobody will give him a chance because he doesnt have much job experience. I feel that the mental health program in my city is terrible. There is no help for teens in my opnion. My psychiatrist just shoved drugs on him and tried to get him to complete 100 crooked pages of paper that had been re photocopied a million times. My son wouldnt do it. He had no energy. I dont feel im doing all i can to help him. I try to sit him down and talk to him when he will let me His girlfriend broke up with him 6 months ago and he has managed to get through that but feels he will never have another girlfriend again. I want to find a support group for him or a leadership camp. Something….there has to be something out there to help him. He doesnt know how to function in society anymore, he doesnt know how to talk to people. His hygeine is not good but improving a bit. he is a handsome young man and I am not just saing that because he is my son. He just is. Always had girls sniffing around him until this depression hit. Now another death of a freind and I am fearful he cant take much more. Any tips or advise would be appreciated especially from somebody 18 to 20. Help I want to be sure i am doing everything i can for him. I never want to look back and think I could have done more. He means the world to me.

Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
