1 - Encourage Treatment.
There is hope to be found in treatment. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than 80% of people suffering from a mental illness can effectively return to their normal activities if they receive appropriate treatment. With early detection and proper treatment many will experience a full recovery. It is critically important to encourage and support your loved one to consult with a professional for treatment recommendations. Effective treatments can include medication, psychotherapy, group therapy, day or partial hospital treatment, creative therapies, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, biofeedback, ECT, and other alternative therapies. Be a messenger of hope for your loved one by encouraging them to seek treatment.
