The Young and the Restless star Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) and his ex-wife Mia are in the news again regarding the tragic events of the death of their son Julian back in November of 2014.   According to TMZ, St. John is suing the facility where his son committed suicide – La Casa Psychiatric Health Facility in Long Beach, CA -for giving Julian access to the plastic bag he used to kill himself.

One of the key reasons St. John is filing the suit is that the actor claims that Julian did the exact same thing less than 3 weeks before his death when he attempted to asphyxiate himself with a trash bag from his room.  In the wrongful death suit, Kristoff says after that failed attempt the hospital never removed the trash bags from his room.

Even more upsetting is Kristoff revealed in his claim: that there is evidence of the nurses falsifying records and that Julian was supposed to be checked on every 15 minutes because he was a high suicide risk, but records show reveal that checks never happened on time.

Kristoff feels the hospital was completely negligent and stated that had the staff acted with even the slighted regard for Julian’s safety, “he would still be alive today.”

I feel for their loss..
A goodbye that is never goodbye..

checking google..La Casa Mental Health Rehabilitation Center – Teleca
(I dont know if I’d intrust anyone to government facility..

It seems that is what it is, not positive just from google;
Telecare is one of the nation’s providers of adult mental health services to county and state governments.
Individuals are referred through Los Angeles County.
Funded by: Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health.
knowing that,, I wish him luck and all the best ..

We had to watch my father in laws care twenty four seven ! Sorry but this is the way of the world today unless you keep them in your home or on top of it twenty four seven this is what happens. I am very sorry for your loss but this facility had a terrible reputation! It is a terrible burden on families who deal with mental illness unless you go thru it you have no idea what is going on!

I agree the substitute..no matter how much you watch and love and give..a loved one could be anywhere..even home..and if they want to go..they find a way to..even fifteen minutes can be too late..removing all objects yet letting other patients have said objects the person knows..it’s heartbreaking but in situations of mental health..there is no blame to be laid…I hope Kristoff realizes he didn’t fail his son…mental health is not parental failure..it’s just a fact of life.

Hi, Aria.
I watched the segment also. And, there I was, crying along with them. Everyone feels their pain. No one wants to experience that anguish….that vise around one’s heart.

But, for those of us who have lost a child, for whatever reason, the pain is not only felt, but also shared. We identify with it. Each time I hear anything even close to this kind of tragedy, my wound opens a little wider.
We may put a band-aid on it….but, the wound never heals.

It’s very sad.

Days Of Our Lives

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
