Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I don't even know where to start. My boyfriend, of almost 4 years now, has recently been going through some very stressful circumstances as well as doing drugs, specifically methamphetamines. He had started hearing voices and talking to God, that went on for a bit and it kept getting worse and worse, I was at my wits end and drove him to a hospital, a mental health facility, and asked, ok I begged him to admit himself, which he did, he stayed overnight and discharged himself AMA. I didn't know what to do. So I took him home, but the voices never go away, and over the last weekend, I was away, he had a BB gun, the cops were called by a neighbor, and he tried to commit suicide by cop, didn't succeed, thankfully, but is now in jail, charged with possession of a firearm and death threats, or something to that effect. I know there were no firearms in the home. But I don't know what to do or how to handle him or the situation, PLEASE HELP! I love the man I knew, but he is hard to find lately, I'm not ready to give up on him, i love him more than my own life, can't give up on him.
