Quote JRTA:Quote KeepingItReal: Is this a trick questions as it is the patient's responsibilty to take her meds.
But based on her actions it's obvious she is not well enough to even make that decision on her own and hence why she should be locked up in a facilty in which the doctor(s) could ensure she takes her meds and get gets therapy too.
Locking her up and forcing her to take meds and therapy won't solve the problem. Until the person accepts the diagnosis, until they have the supports they need, the cycle will continue. One of the reasons is a lack of understand of what living with a mental illness truly is like. There is no quick fix, and it is a constant battle. And even doing EVERYTHING right, a person can still fail.
She should be in a facility and monitored.
Again, I'm glad this is "reel".
