Hi @Mlissaann12 I am so, so sorry to read about what you and your family are going through. I can't imagine how much pain and suffering you are going through right now. Feel free to open up, rant and share everything you are feeling right now.
As for your son, it sounds like you have taken all of the step needed but I can understand how frustrating it is when nothing seems to be moving forward. Let us know if there is something we can do to make you feel more supported through this process.
There are lots of other parents here who have been through similar times with their teen, so I am hoping you receive some messages of support and tips on how to approach this as well.

@Mlissaann12 the love you have for your boy comes through so strongly in your words. It is so hard watching the people we love try to find acceptance in peer groups that aren't good for them. It sounds like you have the kind of relationship with your son, that when he is ready to talk to you about what is happening, he will feel safe to talk to you. That is a credit to your parenting and love.
In terms of getting some more support for you, we found this service that could be helpful for your family right now. Let us know how you go with it.
Do you have anyone supporting you at the moment? A friend or even a counselor?
Sending you lots of strength to get this through this hard time

Glad to hear you have some support from friends @Mlissaann12 also, hope you can find a counselor if that is something you think would help.
Also, I've double checked and that service is a government funded program for all families that are having a hard time
09:00AM to 11:00PM
We are not a counselling or crisis service and we can't guarantee you'll get a reply, so if you need to talk nowClick here for help
