Get him to see a good local psychiatrist asap. Remind him his dad can afford any treatment he needs ( millionaires are so mean !) He is talking, from your quotes, exactly like a seriously depressed person thinking of suicide. Could you discuss this with his family to the extent of pushing them to change tack and encourage him to resume serious treatment ? WOuld he be persuadable to take the initiative on this ? Remind him of his skills which are in demand and likely to be even more so in the future. But find a way to get him to resume seing the shrink and to tell that shrink exactly how hopeless he has been feeling.
