Fix What You Can

Schizophrenia and a Lawmaker’s Fight for Her Son
is a frank account of a mother who was a state legislator

when her son Jim's first psychotic episode manifested itself in a delusion demanding he kill her. Her seat at the table helped her to change policies that would have barred her from saving his life. She first had to overcome her fear that Jim would be like her beloved grandmother who disappeared into a mental hospital when she was 10. Given the heightened national interest in mental illness today and the millions of people affected, this book is timely. It spans 20 years and covers new ground about living with schizophrenia, adding understanding and new appreciation of the challenges.
