“While my son was in jail they didn’t provide masks to him. Some people had masks and some didn’t. They didn’t have enough masks for them while they were in there.
Even when people are sick they are not helping them… they would just tell them ‘just lay down’. It didn’t matter if anybody was sick they would just basically leave them in there. He said all they would do is basically just take their temperature once a day.
It’s just…it’s a bad situation. I mean I understand they’re trying to not have visitors there because of the coronavirus but this is not good for their psyche either, and if you have a person that’s in a mental health unit and they’re not getting the proper care in a mental health unit on top of having a coronavirus, it’s not good for them or their family.
It’s very important to me having all my kids together for Mother’s Day. I feel so happy to have my son home for Mother’s Day because I missed all of the holidays with him this year and I also missed his birthday, so, to have him home for Mother’s Day I am very happy.”
This Mother’s Day, in partnership with MomsRising, Forward Together, National Bail Out, and Zealous, we are highlighting the unfortunate reality and impact of family separation during a global health crisis.
