Thanks for the reply and detailed input.
From the history that you have presented about your son, it seems that he is suffering from Psychosis
, as the thoughts he harbors about people disrespecting him or turning against him/ plotting against him are called as Delusions of persecution or Persecutory delusions.Along with these delusions of persecutory , he has also become aggressive , with streaks of violence in him and as you mentioned , there is a possibility he may cause harm either to others or himself. Plus , his behaviour has effected his professional and personal life , so all these features go in favour of Psychosis , which may be due to an underlying psychiatry condition called as Schizophrenia
I am mentioning a link below which will throw more light on Delusion of persecution and the cause of it .
So, i suggest you get your son evaluated by a Psychiatrist for Psychosis with underlying Schizophrenia as soon as possible, as there is a possibility that he can get into trouble by breaking the law or getting into a serious altercation with others . If he resists in meeting up with the psychiatrist , then you shall call up the mental health institute in your area and ask for help to escort him to the hospital or you may talk to the psychiatrist there at the hospital and ask him/ her to guide you to get him to the hospital and get evaluated and started on treatment.
After his evaluation for psychosis wih underlying Schizophrenia is done, the psychiatrist shall start him on Anti psychotics ,mood stabilizers , and may like to keep him admitted for a few days till his psychosis subsides , after which his treatment will be continued on OPD basis .
So, i suggest you get him evaluated as early as possible , always better to coax him , convince him to meet the psychiatrist ,rather than takng help from the hospital authorities and getting him escorted.
I wish your son rapid recovery to the best of health.
