Our expert says:
It should be acceptable for you to ask to see his doctor, perhaps contacting him / his office first by phone and then by letter, explaining that you are concerned about how to manage thios very difficult relative who is abusing his parents and that you fear for their safety --- no doctor can afford to ignore the possibility that a patient may be a danger to others (indeed that is grounds for compulsory admission and treatment, potentially ). Explain that you seek to understand his diagnosis and whether it is true as he says that Tara will not re-admit him, and why this is and what else you should do about his misconduct. If he is seriously ill, they ought to continue to treat him --- it may well be that in addition to whatever basic psych illness he may have, they see the problem as largely one of an antisocial personality, and that may be why they may find him disruptive and untreatable. They need to advise you as to whether he is any potential risk to his parents, and, broadly, whether in crisis you should call them or the police, to handle him. Emphasize to the people at Tara to whom you speak, that it is his potential danger to others that most worries you, and should worry them, too
