Our expert says:
SO sorry to hear about this, Joanna, as it's obviously very upseting for you. Presumably he should now be in good hands in the psych ward, and under the care of a good local psychiatrist. Speak with the psychiatrist who ca help you understand what has been happening, what the outlook is, and what you can most usefully do ( and, perhaps, not do ). As others suggest, be available and make sure he knows you sympathize, care, and want to help. We need to be available to listen if and when he wants to talk, and to hear what he wants and needs, rather than insistently providing what we need to provide.
