I have a sister who is currently going through some severe mental health issues possibly schizophrenic type undiagnosed anyway.
She is currently staying with my mother along with her partner and two year old daughter.
Now they are both early twenties and the partner doesn't have much going on upstairs and has been dealing with the mental health issues for the past few years. My niece however is showing signs of being severely traumatised by my sisters daily breakdowns and flip outs, the entire family is constantly trying to get my sister to some help and it's come to the point my mother applied for a jeo on Monday which is a formal request by the court she be assessed by a mental health professional. While she was out doing this and niece was in day care my sister had tried to overdose on lexapro and called an ambulance on herself. The hospital sent her home aware of the jeo and dr said she's just a little unhappy with current circumstances she'll be fine will make a follow up appt. wtf?! Anyhow my sister is completely flipping at the moment has been known even last week to throw niece in the car unrestrained and drive off like nobody's business. Niece is afraid of her and severely afraid of the bath and water she becomes extremely withdrawn and unresponsive at times and shakes uncontrollably. My mother is at a loss she's frightened for her daughter and her granddaughter. Worrying my sister could take off anytime with niece or worse.
Any advice please 😥
