Re: As a family member of someone with schizophrenia...

I note your concerns here and I do understand your point of view. I certainly didn't mean to imply that family members who suffer burnout are uncaring. However much friends or family may love someone with a severe mental illness, there are limits for everyone, and I've seen this many times in my work. Staff also get burned out with the emotional toll of working with very ill people. The stigma sufferers have to endure and the effect of burnout on families are two different things. I'll try and clarify that in the strip. Thanks for the input.
