    Dealing with a mental health patient is hard enough, combing the web to find the right help should not be a chore as well.

    The link above is a collection of resources for families dealing with mental health patients in New York.

    Tips for getting past difficult times:

    1. Patience with the person suffering
    2. Boost their morale if they are aware of the issue

    5. Post trauma life could be difficult for the patient as they adjust back and they need support getting back on their feet.
