It’s not uncommon for those living with the symptoms of a serious mental health issue to try to ignore their symptoms. The California Department of Mental Health estimates that of the 39,700 people living in Marin County, about 3,290 of them are living with a serious mental illness or a serious emotional disturbance. Of that 8.28 percent of the population, how many are getting the help they need and how many are living in denial?

Staging a Mental Health Treatment Intervention for Your Loved One
An intervention is a loving confrontation in which you and some other close friends and family help your loved one to understand that a mental health issue is a problem for them and hurting their lives. It is not effective in the most serious of cases (e.g., certain personality disorders) but it can be effective when your loved one is refusing to seek treatment for grief disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression and other mood issues.
To stage an intervention, you can:
- Gather together three to seven people who care about your loved one.
- Hold a meeting to discuss who will say what and when – all with the goal of lovingly guiding your family member toward the medical treatment they need.
- Choose a time and location.
- Hire a professional interventionist if you are unsure how to handle the details or don’t want the task of running the intervention itself.
