National City, CA Treatment for Mental Health
When tragedy strikes – like the 2012 double murder suicide at a senior center near National City, California – people often try to find someone to blame. The man who killed two women before turning the gun on himself was reported by one person as “a little off,” and possibly in need of mental health intervention.
Unfortunately, that intervention never came and three lives were lost as a result. The consequences of untreated mental health symptoms are not always this extreme, but they can cause havoc in the lives of patients and their family members – and at the very least, significantly decrease the quality of life for everyone involved.

Identifying the Need for Treatment
How do you know when your family member is in need of mental health treatment – or if he or she is just “eccentric”? It’s not always easy to pinpoint when personality differences are treatable issues or simply harmless quirks. However, it’s always important to intervene if your loved one:
- Is endangering himself through self-harm, suicide attempts, substance abuse, reckless behavior or disordered eating habits
- Endangers the well-being of others through angry outbursts, violence of any kind or threats of violence
- Is experiencing negative consequences due to an inability to function normally in day-to-day life
