Did you knowthat In the United States, and elsewhere in the English speaking world, less than 20% of people with a serious mental disorder get properly diagnosed and effectively treated?

The question for you and for families with a member who has a mental illness or addiction becomes how not to be part of the greater than 80% of individuals who don’t receive the treatments and services proven to work? Ask Dr. Lloydwill give you answers. My bio (click on ‘About the Doctor’) tells you why I can provide these answers.

I will help you understand mental illnesses and addictions, what treatments and services have been proven scientifically effective, how to manage yourself or help your loved one, and how to beat a mental health system known to be ‘broken’ and apt to defeat you.

I will answer your questions clearly and simply – and in a way that gives you direction. I will provide accounts of individuals and families, stories from my experience, and important information you can access on other websites, in the media, in scientific publications, and in books, magazines, movies and television.

My mission is to enable you to receive 21st century care – not waiting for miracles but gaining mastery of mental illness and addiction and the services that so often are a nightmare to navigate.

To ask Dr. Lloyd a question, just click on the “Ask a Question” tab up above and send me an email. Check to see if your question is answered on the “Your Questions Answered” tab. I will be posting responses several times a week and will select from the range of your questions those that seem to cover a variety of concerns.
