So sorry you have to go through that. Ignorance does this.. And especially to people who don't want to learn and remain ignorant. It can be so damaging to one's life. It's insane. If only they knew that "medicine" is just purified "herbs" anyway.

I'm so sorry you have to go through with that, OP. My uncle suffers with mental illness and for the longest time his wife thought herbs and prayer would cure him. It wasn't until they were married 5 years and he went on a manic high she realized he needs professional help. Hopefully your mother will come around.

So sorry, actual medicine is what we need sometimes, not just natural, not saying that natural medicine isn't real. I'm just saying we need the meds that were made to deal with it! Best of luck!

Well pretty much all medicine is natural to some degree. But yes sometimes we need actual medicine and not just the placebo effect from thinking some herbal remedies actually do anything.

I agree that meds usually help, but they sometimes dont help enough, or they have severe side effects. Schizophrenia, for example, has meds that treat some of the symptoms (usually only positive but sometimes negative symptoms as well), but they have severe side effects such as diabetes.

Some people such as the Hmong believe that illnesses are spiritual and can only be treated with special herbs. Maybe OP's mom comes from a culture like that. Her mom may just have a different cultural background which we see as crazy, but she may believe that it works. That doesn't make her mentally ill, but it doesn't make her right either.
