Abstract: This paper, written by the parents of a woman with schizo-affective disorder, describes their joint journey of discovery regarding the illness. It spells out the degrees to which they, the Mental Health System and the community manage this person’s illness, and defines lessons which each element of the system needs to learn in order to begin moving towards an excellent standard of management.
