Thank you for posting your story. I was experiencing deja vu as I read because I have lived what you are living through except my troubled child is a girl. I spent years trying to get help in a system that is extremely broken. I too was told to go through the courts and have her committed to juvenile detention. But she is mentally ill! Not a criminal! I finally found a childhood psychiatrist who helped me commit her to a lock down treatment facility for 4-1/2 months. It was the key we were looking for but getting it about destroyed our family. My heart goes out to you and all the other parents dealing with a mentally ill child. I've been on the bandwagon for more mental health funding and research in this country. Maybe now politicians will listen.
