Has anyone any experience of the treatment of mental illness in Turkey? My wife suffers from bi polar and although we have (potentially) a wonderful life this dreadful illness is slowly destroying our entire family. My wife is 53, a beautiful and intelligent woman. But mood swings and attempts at "self medication" mainly with alcohol have caused mayhem. We are currently trying to build a new life (in retirement) near Izmir. We have bought a wonderful home with fabulous views. Our neighbours are all terrific. But my wife's erratic behaviour is becoming almost impossible to manage. I realise no one on here will have the "magic bullet" answer. But I wondered if any other members had sought medical l advice in Turkey.....and what are the costs. We have been through the whole gamut of NHS practitioners for 30 years, plus AA.
