A man diagnosed with schizophrenia in Saginaw, Michigan died at the hands of police when it was reported that he had left a store without paying for a cup of coffee and had allegedly been brandishing a folding knife. Rather that undergo evaluation and diagnosis, the man was shot 46 times by six officers. The problem? Law enforcement officers do not have enough training to effectively respond to someone living with a mental illness.

The solution? There are a number of theories. One of the best possible solutions is for families to intervene before there is an altercation with police and provide loved ones living with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and other mental health disorders that can cause erratic behavior with the mental health care they need to address the issue.

Violence and Erratic Behavior

Not everyone diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder will be violent, threaten others or have run-ins with the law. But it is an issue that can occasionally crop up, and those who go without mental health treatment that includes effective medication are at highest risk. Intensive mental health care that provides therapeutic and pharmacological intervention as well as long-term follow-up aftercare is the best possible option for those living with extreme mental health symptoms.
