My father retired from the military after 30 years in 2010. Shortly after we became aware of insecurities, paranoia and eventually being treated for mental health. He was an honorable man, noble and smart. But 3 days ago he shot himself. And I am lost as to where to go from here... How did the mental illness start? They are saying schizophrenia, but something else caused this. Thank you for sharing.
