Sounds like a very serious risk of suicide, and the conviction that he is worthless and not deseriving of help is sadly typical of such situations. If you believe there is a serious risk of him harming himself, you could approach his psychiatrist ( if he has seen one before ) or discuss this with your GP ( especially if he has seen your husband before, for any reason ) and discuss the possibility of arrangeing for a compulsory admission to hospital fo him to be assessed and if necessary, treated.
