A Mother's Story
I was introduced to Coastal Behavioral Healthcare a few years ago when my kind, smart 24-year old son was diagnosed with schizophrenia. His life up to that point seemed pretty normal. He attended a gifted school, played little league baseball, was an outstanding soccer player in high school on the elite travel team, was a debutante escort and was voted "most congenial" by his senior class. He also held a part-time job. During his college years, he worked several part-time jobs until he graduated with a degree in science. Then off to graduate school to pursue a master's degree.
