If he has a public defender, he has a fully qualified lawyer who should know what to do in a circumstance like this and who has a professional obligation to work on his client's behalf. Reach out to the lawyer and apprise him of this. If the lawyer shrugs it off and he works for a public defender's office, call the office, ask to speak to his supervisor, and demand that his lawyer do something so this man gets the treatment he's Constitutionally entitled to.

An inmate has the right, under the 8th Amendment to the Constitution to adequate medical care and his failure to get it is considered cruel and unusual punishment which is prohibited by law. The prison doesn't have to give him the same level of care he'd get on the outside. But they can't turn a blind eye to a serious condition, either, and that goes for his mental health as well as his physical health.

If you can't get the public defender's office involved, the American Civil Liberties Union advocates all over the country for various inmate rights, including the right to necessary mental health and medical treatment. Contact the local branch in Indiana, and try to get them involved. They don't charge for their services,but if they have too much on their plate to handles this personally, they may be able to give you a referral to someone who can be of more use. Ditto, the local branch of the NAACP which advocates for defendants without resources whose civil rights are being violated.
