I am a mother suffering from bipolar disorder and hyperthyroidism, while my 19-year-old son has Schizophrenia and has tried several times to commit suicide. We are living in Indonesia. (Kindly forgive me, I did not put his picture here, I honestly worry about my son's mental condition due to the stigma of most people so far towards patients with mental disorders, from the bottom of my heart I beg with the utmost respect for your understanding of this) I can send photos or the video in private via email if needed.
Four years he was in and out of a mental hospital (as much as 7x) with insignificant results, and even made him (and me) more traumatized, due to poor care there. He was injured, because of his legs and arms chained. He was placed with patients whose age was much older than him, some even taught him to smoke. Whereas my son is not a smoker.
I once enrolled my son in several rehabilitation centers at a cost that I thought was quite affordable for my economic condition, but was refused on the grounds that they only treated mental patients due to drug abuse, and my son was not included in the that criteria.
Finally and currently my son is being treated at the Mental Rehabilitation Institution that accordance with his condition, and I am grateful his condition slowly improved (stable).
During that time I pay it joints with my family members and I get a fee reduction from the Rehabilitation Center, so the rest we have to pay each month is IDR 3,750,000.
But unfortunately I'm currently running out of money, and my family has run out of savings, I don't have any money to pay for this month and the next few months, but I never thought of giving up because I'm sure there are many good people like you out there who is willing to be generous to help us.
I need financial assistance to pay the monthly fees for my son who is being treated at the Rehabilitation Center. Every penny and prayers from you are very valuable to us. Or ..... If you know or have information about institutions, foundations or individuals who care and provide assistance for funding Schizophrenia patients, I beg you to let me know.
Thank you very much to those who contributed or reshared my campaign.
