Lisa, I am so sorry to hear about the horrific ordeal your son and you went through after changing providers. I am not sure that release to a homeless shelter is ever warranted for someone with serious mental illness. It is very disturbing to see how badly this vulnerable population is treated. Without heroic support from family or friends, these vulnerable people can end up in very dangerous, harmful situations. Did you file grievances against the number of entities involved? As a guardian, I am glad that you were able to advocate and get him the treatment and housing he is entitled to receive.
Lastly, I am glad he is back with his Lifewell ACT team and in supervised housing.
