I have a 27 year old son who is mentally ill and has been on the streets for 5 years. Last year he was discharged from a hospital after being beaten. He was discharged with out even any shoes at 1 in the morning. Luckily he was near my parents and he could call for them to pick him up. Most recently we recieved hospital bill and ambulance bill form Washington. He recieved multiple CT scans and we were only able to find out he discharged himself in the middle of winter weather. He will not stay in hospital because of his mental illness. I have not heard from him since and wonder if in the cold of Washinton he had a coat or shoes when he left. We have not heard from him since and we usually get some contact so now I wonder if he survived after he left the hospital. So if I could commit him I would because it least it would be a chance for him to get meds and maybe clear so he is not enduring the suffering of living on the streets. I just can not imagine it being worse than it is now for him.
