The Mentally Ill Needs Help


This book is about the life of my son Alexander Martin, whom became sick with a terrible illness at an early age. This illness controls his every being. Which lead to him killing his brother.


If Alexander’s doctor had listen to him and tried to help him when he asked for help, my son Enrico would be alive today. His doctor knew that Enrico was harassing Alexander and his doctor should have found another place for Alexander to stay.


This is why I blame the mental health system for Enrico’s death. I can only pray that one day they will find ways to control the violence in the paranoid schizophrenia, and help them to live a normal life. The mental health system needs to stop putting them out on the streets where they become homeless. So many mentally ill people are locked up in jails or prisons instead of getting the help they need. They are even talking about give the mentally ill life and death sentences.
