It isn't possibnle to treat such a person unless and until they are willing to talk and work with a properly traine expert psychologist. What you CAN do to help, would be, through your mom, to have her encourage him gently to understand that he would greatly benefit from working with a suitable shrink, and could be happier and more functional if he did.
