Thank you for you valuable input, as I now have a clearer of picture of this young man and an idea of his impediments. It sounds like he experiences stress when he is on overload, which does not require an overly great amount. This sounds like an anxiety disorder. He cannot cope withe the stress. Of course you realize it is tenuous to diagnose some one in this manner, but I would venture to say tha he has a generalized anxiety disorder or an anxiety disorder not otherwise specified. I would not advise medication at this point because they all have a greater or lesser degree of addiction potention.unless the "cras" that he undergoes is sever This type of disorder is very amenable to cognitive behavioral therapy.because So I am advising that he go for psychotherapy/counseling. He is lucky in that he has a strong supportive family resource in you. So yes, I would advise psychotherapy/counseling. I would not push him to go to school, but encouage it. It does not have to be all or nothing, He does not have to go full time, he could go part time.
