Schizophrenia - Three moms in the trenches Schizophrenia in the Family. How do we cope? How can we help? We each have adult sons with schizophrenia and have written acclaimed books about it. We say it like it is, to help families, practitioners and those with SMI (serious mental illness) feel less alone…and learn. Randye Kaye, Mindy Greiling, Miriam Feldman…and guests.

Guests: Karen Comba, author of The Snipers We Couldn’t See: A Memoir of Growing Up with My Mother’s Schizophrenia

And Christina Lord, mental health advocate (Canada) daughter of a dad with SZ,

First, your stories.

How has the experience impacted you (Karen writes about life “with footprints on her back”)

How did your experience- and the unpacking of it – inform the work you now do?

What do you most want other children of parents with SZ to know?

What do you want others to know – teachers, practitioners, other adults in a child-of’s life?

How to find happier places for your mind?
