Support for parents

Hi
I have a situation going on with my parents and brother. I am no longer serving and live 10 minutes away.

My 30 year old brother still lives at home and has behavioural issues, drink drugs etc. This weekend has been a nightmare, he's now been locked up for breach of the peace!

This weekend's episode has seen him become violent and take a swing at my dad.

I'm not looking for help with him, as everything has been tried short of having him sectioned. 1 more episode and he's out on the street.

I'm wondering f anyone knows of any charities that could help support my parents at all, my mum has previousley had a nervous breakdown and my dad has had a TIA and my brother has been the cause! I really worry about heir health and well being.

Any help woud be appreciated. BTW we live in Leeds.
 
Perhaps he needs to see GP to talk about the issues, but if they feel there are none then you are stuffed?
Reading the Right Act and explaining it to him how effecting you're parents might help?

Sadly being sectioned might get the help he needs, probably a borderline personality issue caused by drink & drugs, but then he would be made to talk about what he is experiencing etc. Due to age, unless the GP has prior information from your parents on him as he is over 18 GP will not discuss it?

Look at MIND who offer good advice & support.
But, your brother needs to admit he has a problem, does he, then GP can help.

Keep me posted please.

gorilla made the point that he's seeking help for his parents rather than his brother though I fear that the two problems are inextricably linked.

The first port of call should be their GP who may refer them for formal medical help but should also be able to suggest less formal but perhaps more specialised organisations to approach.

Hi, my brother has had all the help anyone could ask for. I very much doubt that my parents would go to their GP about this, so a charity, just someone to talk to with experience would be beneficial.

You could go to the GP and ask about local support groups. Alternatively, you could ask SSAFA the same question.
