Children whose brain is affected by medical/biomedical, neurobiological, metabolic, functional problems, although not of a psychological/emotional origin, may still be diagnosed as what society euphemistically refers to as "mental illness." Isn't it time to start calling those illnesses what they really are--ILLNESS--same as any other? (Español)

Beginning of Hell - Psychosis and Hospitalization
What is psychosis like for a child? What is it like for a parent to have a psychotic child? What do you do when your child thinks everyone has suddenly become evil and wants to jump from a moving car, stab herself... and attacks?
The author of "It's Not Mental" had a follow up guest appearance on Edin Road Radio, reading the end of "The Brewing Storm" and the start of "Hell." She read most of Chapter 18 - "Blindsided" then had a short chat with host Jesse Coffey.
