My brother seems to be suffering from paranoia. He is having delusions of what he describes as being "gang-stalked." He has even sent me links to websites where other "targeted individuals" have gathered to share their stories of this epedemic of "gang-stalking." I know that my brother is suffering from some type of paranoia-typed mental illness, but he cannot be told this without thinking that I am "one of them." I want him to get help, and I want to be able to help him, but I don't even know where to start. This is killing me. I love my brother and I can't stand to see him living his life every day with the terrors that these delusions are giving him. Our birth-mother also suffers from paranoia, however her delusions do not include this "gang-stalking" phenomena. Is mental illness a hereditary disease? What can I do to be supportive of my brother's illness? How can I get him to seek help?
