I have a friend that several people have tried to get into some sort of treatment or counseling, the situation is pretty bad. I don't think that my friend would do this on his own unless he was in a very low point, but some of his family members decided that maybe he could be coaxed if the condition was right and not so much like an intervention. So they sought out this woman that was a mental health nurse or something along that lines who took it upon herself to do some background checking- all under the cloud of person in need I guess. One of the things that she did was to approach an instructor of one of the classes my friend attends and then to actually enroll to see how he was managing. At some point she decided to go head on and approached him in front of many of his class mates, she was far from discreet. Well things did not go well and he went off on everyone around him like a bomb. On one hand I do not blame him, I can just imagine he feels very embarrassed. Is what happened even considered desirable? Is full blown intervention the only way to get someone the help they need?
