I have a neighbor, whom I do not know that well, but in speaking with her on a few occasions have noticed that she may need psychiatric care. She lives alone, has never been married and does not have any contact with her siblings or other family members. As an RN, I have noticed some of her behaviors that she exhibits-she may just be eccentric, but I have observed a very labile mood with her-one minute she is crying about her job, and then she has the strangest forced laugh I have ever heard. She talks about her job and tells me that they (co-workers) are out to sabotage her. She has called me from work and asked me to watch her house because she is afraid a woman whom she works with will try to do something to her home. She has told me that she sees a ghost in her house and she believes that the women who lived there before was murdered in the home. I have a feeling that the reason she has no contact with her family is that they may have "disowned" her because she doesn't stick to treatments that she may have ordered. I am trying to find out names of her family members so that I can contact someone, but in the meantime, I think she needs to see a psychiatrist. I don't think that she is in any danger of hurting herself or anyone else, but there could be potential. What is the best way to convince her to get help? How can I help her see a professional?
