I am a mom who has raised three children, one of whom had schizophrenia and died by suicide at age 25. I am an advocate for better treatment and resources for people with severe mental illness, and I'm learning how I fit into a world that doesn't include my son. I'm currently working on a memoir about being an advocate for someone with paranoid schizophrenia and recovering from the suicide of a child.
