Summary
"One unremarkable night, Kartar Diamond's remarkably talented 15-year old son walked into the living room and shouted, "every musician in L.A. is stealing my ideas!" and went back into his room. Minutes later he came back, belt in hand, and began whipping the couch and shouting with escalating paranoia. Little did his mother realize, the journey into hell had begun. As her son crumbles before her eyes, Diamond powers through the endless confusion and ineffectiveness of the modern mental health care system and demands not only a diagnosis, but a way to treat her son and help him live the fullest expression of his life possible. The "system" - emergency rooms, police, counselors, psychiatrists, nurses, clinics, mental health administrators and homeless shelters - keep spitting him back out on the streets of Skid Row. The cycle goes on and on, spiraling downward toward one of two conclusions: death or the slimmest of chances of finding safety. Diamond's clear-eyed story-telling brings wisdom and insider information on how to navigate the murky waters of public mental healthcare, its legal ramifications, as well strategies to cope with the chaos and pain of having a schizophrenic loved one." -- Amazon.com
