Hi Laura. I am so sorry you are facing all of this. I also have a 19 year old son who has experienced mental health issues as well as addiction. I know the road you have been traveling down has been long and hard. Your son is lucky to have you. My best advice is to find balance. Be there for your son, always, but remember to take care of yourself too.

We have a wonderful forum for Parents With children in prison that can be found HERE as well as a Florida forum that can be found HERE.

Welcome to Prison Talk Laura. The beginning, when nobody knows the extent of his punishment is the hardest time. Communications should improve once everything is settled. Stay strong, take care of yourself (don't be afraid to ask for help) so you can continue to support your son. He needs your love now more than ever.

Hello Laura,

Very often, a spiritual connection can radically change a person's mindset and attitude. I have known many incarcerated men who found that opening up the spiritual dynamic in their mind and heart gave them the strength, focus and understanding to "find themselves" in prison and grow to be bigger, more highly evolved people.

God Bless,
Gus
