Question for parents

Have you had social services involvement solely based on having schizophrenia? I read approximately 50% of schizophrenic mothers lose custody of their children. My old cpn would report me to social services repeatedly because of unfair judgement and stigma, she thought my childrens needs couldn’t possibly be met despite evidence to the contrary. Social services have no concerns at the moment but I can’t help but feel that’s because I am currently staying with family temporarily. I feel like the diagnosis is truly a life sentence where as before I was seen as a competant and able parent able to live independently, after the diagnosis everything was scrutinised even my children by my health visitor and cpn. I worry they won’t let me go back to living independently as a family.
