Good morning. Can you share with me a little more about the situation?

Well, it's actually a mental health question. I've already consulted with legal regarding this. My 19 year old nephew is sexually involved with an 18 year old classmate. I was told about having to get evaluations from doctors, or any other qualified professional in the mental health field.
A simple "mental age" revealed he has the mental age of 14. Does that make a difference?

Thank you. This was in the legal category, so allow me to just move it to another section, so a mental health expert can assist.

Thank you so much. FYI, legal has been responding to my questions more quickly than other experts.

I put in the question to move this, so it may take some time but it was placed in the mental health section.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
