hi i am Bagus Utomo from Indonesia. my brother recovered very well after about 17 years suffering schizophrenia. i start a facebook group for families in 2009, now we have more than 5300 members all over accross Indonesia.

Indonesia is an archipelago with about 17.000 islands. You can imagine how difficult it is for families to get proper health support, even for just information about mental illness. Indonesia only have about 600 psychiatrist for 250 million people!

social media is really a miracle for us. families are now accessing our facebook group with cellphone! so don't give up hope. we also struggle hard enough in Indonesia! Spirit!
