Is there a mental illness reporting center?
Original post made by Joanne, Woodside: Skywood/Skylonda, on Dec 17, 2006
Here is the background information for my question:
I have a neighbor who may have a mental illness. He/She closes the door when exiting about 10 times and double checks the lock several more times. He/She always waits around for people in the building and will verbally corner you in to talk to you. He/She makes comments that make my spouse uncomfortable. He/She tells me that he/she is interested in a person who is the same height as my spouse.
I can't really list all of the things that make me nervous. Many are un PC but are the things that you too would find "curious" privately.
My question is this: can I report this person to any local authorities? Is it ok to have someone who may need medical help running around undiagnosed?
Please please please do not respond with any PCish comments about privacy and all of that. Think of my perspective as this... a parent concerned about the safety of their child.
This is a question that you might ask a dear friend... a friend who you can be "real" and uncensored.
Thank you for truly trying to help me. :-)
