We might have to admit my little brother into a mental health care facility and I feel terrible.

Really sorry for that.
We don't have those much anymore in Michigan.
Mostly homecare with homecare workers.
I hope, if necessary, it's helpful for him and family

@Justmeraeagain Unfortunately, it was. 🥺😔 The poor little boy was put on a 3 night hold. I hope he is safe.
Justmeraeagain · 51-55, F
@ArminArlert okay yeah we have those just not long term places.
It's hard.
ArminArlert · 22-25, M
@Justmeraeagain Interesting. I think there has to be places for people for an emergency. This one is for children.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope he will have the professional support he needs to feel better. I hope you'll feel fine too. Hugs.

@Sharky86 *hugs* Thank you, Dude. He's been struggling for years, but today was especially tough. His beautiful eyes just looked dark and dead.

I'm just so sad.

I am sorry to hear that but I hope he gets the help he needs
ArminArlert · 22-25, M
@TheCaterpillar Yeah, me too. The past year has been pretty shit for him and for the people who loves him to see him hurting so much. :(

He will be so scared though.
ArminArlert · 22-25, M
@Iwillwait He's 15. :(
Iwillwait · M
@ArminArlert Sorry. 😞
ArminArlert · 22-25, M
@Iwillwait Yeah, it absolutely sucked. The poor kid. :(
ArminArlert · 22-25, M
@InHeaven He's mentally ill and not coping very well.
InHeaven · F
@ArminArlert 15 is probably too young for such a facility...
ArminArlert · 22-25, M
@InHeaven It's one for little kids and he's been there before, so I hope it's a good thing. :(
Adstar · 56-60, M
What is his first name?
ArminArlert · 22-25, M
@Adstar Ahhh. I don't think giving his nickname could hurt. Manny.
