Whatever this is could well be work-related, and he should be seen by a good psychiatrist, presumably covered by his Medical Aid, as well as for a proper physical check-up by the GP or a physician. He may be suffering from Depression and/or Anxiety Disorder, both of which respond well to proper treatment, which should ideally include CBT-style counselling / therapy as well as medication. If this is stress-related it is essential that he see such a CBT therapist / counsellor to identify the sources of the stress, and learn to remove them, tolerate them, and to cope better with stress.
A psyhciatrist's advice is important, rather than havin this handled only by a GP.
