What is a nervous breakdown?
According to the Mayo Clinic, "nervous breakdown" is not a medical term, but a phrase the public often uses to characterize a wide range of mental illnesses. Generally, it's meant to describe someone suffering from severe depression. Stress, drug and alcohol use and coexisting medical conditions -- such as thyroid disorders and some vitamin deficiencies -- as well as genetics can all be contributing factors to mental illness.

Woman reported psychological issues
Hospital released her before killings

A 61-year-old Sterling Heights woman thought she was experiencing what she called a "nervous breakdown" hours before she repeatedly slammed her 87-year-old mother's head on the garage floor and then took her own life, police said Wednesday.
A coworker of the daughter, Lois Radlick, found the bodies Monday in the garage on Tericrest Drive -- across the street and a few doors down from the scene of another murder-suicide three years ago.
Radlick had not shown up for work Oct. 17, the day she called police and told the officers who visited that she was having psychological problems.
"She voiced concerns about her own well-being -- that she might be having a nervous breakdown," Lt. Michael Reese said.
Fearing that she was suicidal, officers transported her to HenryFordMacombHospital.
"From what I understand, she must have been seen by a physician and was released" that day, Reese said.
She later killed her mother, Elsie Coryell, and then committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning exuded from a car and motorcycle in the garage, police said.
Radlick lived alone with her mother who didn't have any known health problems. The women had troubles in their relationship, police said.
"The daughter thought the mother was basically controlling her life," said Reese, speaking about some reported financial troubles.
Suzanne Schut, of Henry Ford Macomb, said she couldn't comment specifically on a patient's treatment. Patients brought to the Mt.Clemens campus for psychological treatment are evaluated by a doctor and referred to either the in-patient or outpatient program, she said.
