It sounds like a visit to your GP is needed to check out your daughter, cause and effect.

Medications may need to be considered. Sad to say you need to take the Bull by the Horns. Take advise

if she's 13 years old....she is under legal age to be out drinking...and if she is potentially putting her self at risk...I would look into an in-patient admission for her...if your not able to keep her from doing this.

Yes I know this i have police and social work involved and waiting more help as kids have so many rights and know them as a mother I am unable to keep her in as she know I can’t stop her

Hello and welcome to this supportive community. Your daughter is what I call in the teenage years, her hormones are all over the place and she is rebelling against any and all authority. However, she is only thirteen and it is illegal that she is drinking alcohol and staying out all hours. You also say something quiet telling 'doesn't handle change well'. May I ask what change and what is she rebelling against please? The answer to these questions may tell us a lot about what is going on with her right now.

Also seeing your GP and school phycologist may well be a good idea.

Does any other member have any help for this distraught Mum please?

Please stay in touch with us and best wishes,

MAS Nurse.

she's out of control and if you don't get outside help as obviously she does what she wants...things are going to get worse. she should be in an inpatient environment that is controlled for her...and evaluated, monitored, and treated.

Everything is down to cost not enough help out there to be seen by mental heath team 16/18 week waiting list. No wonder it ends up to late for a lot of people.

It makes me so angry to hear that she's having trouble getting access to the care she needs. I'm so sorry you're going through this. Is she at least on this waiting list? You never know if a cancelation could come up and she could see a doctor sooner.

What about an emergency (mental health) hotline? In the US we call 911 for all emergencies which would include a person acting violently, aggressively, or hearing voices.

Also, is bringing her to the emergency room an option? This certainly feels like an emergency to me. I feel her life is in danger. Using that avenue might speed up access to the care she needs. This sounds like a desperate situation. Don't lose hope and don't stop seeking treatment. Somebody must eventually help you. I'm praying you will have peace in the midst of this.

Great, well, we're here waiting with you, ok? You can think of it as if we all went out one night in the same part of town, we're just at different parties. You can still reach out whenever you need to.
