My brother,an adult, was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and bi-polar. He has hit the deep end and has lost touch with reality. I don't really want to get into personal details. My sister-in-law has had to call the police twice due to violence... and he has threatened suicide. The police say they can not take him unless he is a threat to himself... or others. An assesment team even came out to the house after the second call and said he wasn't enough of a "threat." He says he is fine and refuses any help or meds. He now sees the numbers 666 every where and says the devil is out to get him. He can act sane when it suits him but loses it around people he is comfortable with. We were told that a judge would have to order him into a hospital. Does anyone have any advice, please? We have tried to talk him into getting help and he becomes mad as us because (in his words)...we think he is crazy. This has been going on and progressing for several years. I have been trying to find info on line for the state of Texas...to not much avail. Thank you.
