Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry your son is having emotional/mental problems. From your description, your son needs to be evaluated by a Psychiatrist either voluntarily or by having him committed (Baker Act for up to 72 hours). You don't mention if he has been prescribed any medication or if he has, whether he is taking it. He needs help so he does not do anything that he or you will regret.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
