My cousin, who I am super close with, was diagnosed with schizophrenia on Monday. He is 27 years old and single. He's had a pretty good job for the last 4 years in the auto repair industry but lately has had some struggles with some things and has seemed sort of out of touch with reality. His folks brought him in for some testing and help and that's when he was diagnosed after I guess talking with a psychiatrist at a local facility. We all live in New York and I'm really worried for him. He is going to be seeing a psychologist or maybe even a psychiatrist, I'm not sure which, regularly and he might need some medication and he can still work but I'm still concerned about him because we grew up together and it's hard to think of him struggling. I wanted to find some place maybe that we could all go to for help and information in our area but I'm not sure if anything is out there like that. I've been reading a lot on empowher about other health stuff but never thought I'd have to post about my own problem. I hope someone here maybe lives in NY too and maybe has a mental health issue and can help me out with a place to go for help. Thank you.
