Has the child been ordered to treatment? What is the issue which has caused this? I am just trying to get a little more information about the situation
Have the police been called?

A parent can not be forced by a third party, to enter their children into treatment, for their behavior and mental health issues. That is something which they either need to do so voluntarily or through court order. What would prompt a court to do this, would be if the child was facing criminal charges. In this case, if there have been threats to you and the police have been called and the child was arrested and charged, then the Judge can step in and order the child to be evaluated and if needed, entered into treatment, so they can get help. Unless it is court ordered, the mother does not have to do it, at this time and the DA would only be involved if they file charges, as a result of what he has done to you
