Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
How can I convince her to accept that she has a problem and get her to see a mental health professional? At the present time she does not want to speak to me, she is spreading remors to other family members that I mistreated her and lying about things that are not true. A year ago she came to me for help because she was having marital problems she claimed that her husband was abusive and he was the cause of her disease among other things. And of course I had to believe her and tried to help her with her problems by talking to her. I do admit sometimes I had to raise my voice at her and her at me but it was a cycle because she felt she knew the answer to her problems. Within a few months living in my house she left with her husband and left me a note that she was going to resolve their marital problems together including their health issues. As of today she still has the same habits. Her husband has also tried to help her but has been unsuccesfull. She wants to move with other family members and leave her husband because she feels her husband is spreading the disease and is not willing to help her. Family members all have tried to convince her that the best place for her to be is with me. She doesn't want to speak to me or come home, because she doesn't want my help. This is situation is very hard for me and can't seem to find a way to help her.
