Missing Persons Support


Those who are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness cannot always communicate their thoughts clearly, or understand what others are saying to them. In confusion, some will retreat. Others may have grandiose ideas, and do not have the ability to make sound judgments. The thought of a family member, a friend, or someone you care about going missing, can be terrifying. You don't know where they are, if they are hurt, or if they need help. The persons state of mind also makes the situation more serious, and taking action quickly can make a difference.
