Missing woman’s dad encouraged Islam over medication

A young woman whose father encouraged her to study Islam as an alternative to medication to treat her bipolar disorder and schizophrenia is missing.

Taneesha Brown’s struggle with mental illness has caused her family concern on several occasions in recent years, but those who know and love the 25-year-old now fear for her life after she walked out into the cold from her aunt’s Markham home Tuesday night.

    @Delme Evans I’ve known this family for decades and taught the youngest daughter swimming lessons. When she was 12, she confided some very shocking things to me about her dad. Before any of this religion as an alternative to meds thing was outted, I just knew that Mr. Brown was behind it. Mrs. Mazerolle (their mum) has always advocated for her children’s health. Mr. Brown has refused to accept the very real challenges Taneesha faced.

    The standard muslim treatment for a family member with mental illness within Dar al Salaam usually involves a stout tree and some spare slave shackles.

    It seems the Quran has the effect of either driving people mad from the revelation, or on their knees, begging for a new Dark Age these days…
