Hello
Your son needs psychiatric help.
This sounds like delusional disorder, which is very serious, and difficult to treat.
Is he willing to get help?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No I carnt get him to the doctors,he doesn't think he has a problem it's everyone else

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
Then there are only a couple of options.
If he is a danger to himself or others, then you can have the family doctor initiate forcible assessment and treatment at the hospital, or you can do this as well.
Or, the family needs to get a family therapist--PHD in clinical psychology--to help everyone arrange a family intervention to get him into therapy.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
