I am sorry about your son.

it sounds like he is at risk to injure himself and others

he could have mental disorders such as schizophrenia or a personality disorder

he needs to see a psychiatrist for evaluation as soon as possible

you can also call the police to have him arrested if he has hurt or injured himself or others and they could bring him to a mental hospital for admission and treatment.

he could have a psychotic disorder.

that is too bad his own doctors won't do anything

he needs to go into a mental hospital as soon as possible

but it sounds like he will not be willing to go.

and often patients will refuse to take medications which will help them.
