My husband will be returning from the hospital in a few days. This has been his 4th trip to a mental facility since July. He has attempted suicide 4 times since then. He suffers from major depression. He is applying for disability and is not currently working. One of his problems is that he has nothing to do during the day. They want him to create a structure to his day but we are at a loss as to how to do that. He also needs to use coping skills so that he doesn't sink into crisis mode. He is currently on Cymbalta but weaning off it to Prozac. He also takes Depakote and Ripiradol. Has anyone had any luck with these meds? Any ideas on how I can help him when he gets home?
