Depressed Because Son Is In Prison - From Anon

I am very worried about my Mum. My brother has just been sent away to a young offenders prison and my Mum hasn't been eating and has been staying in her dressing gown all day. She keeps saying that it is all her fault because she wasn't at home a lot when we were younger but she was working full time to support me and my brother and I told her that it isn't her fault that he has gone off the rails and in to a bad crowd. My Mum said she is scared to visit him and does not know what to expect. Can you help?
