Need help for brother

Unread postby sarad » 20 Jan 2018

My brother has cerebral palsy plus severe OCD, anxiety, depression, aggression. He is on medication now but at nights he gets very nervous and has hit us a couple of times in the past year when he was very nervous. My parents are old and don't speak much English.

I have been searching for help with no success. Especially looking for someone or a group to take him out for fun activities on an everyday basis. his mood enhances when he socializes with people.
Please please help us I myself have anxiety and depression and this makes it very hard to find help for my family.
