Go on the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Web Site. Call 800-273-TALK (8255), the suicide prevention hotline.
Most of all, your brother will need to take his schizophrenia medication every day as prescribed. Should he need to be hospitalized, be not afraid to try to get him help. be with him, talk with him, go on the suicide prevention web site I linked to find risk factors, warning signs and What To Do.
I'm sorry your brother isn't doing well, yet I would recommend you don't give up hope. So take action, go on the prevention web site. There's also another Web site, I can't vouch for its contents: Suicide Prevention.
And I would keep in contact with your brother's psychiatrist. he or she won't tell you what goes on in their sessions, but you can at least tell the psychiatrist what you're observing in your brother in the way of type, frequency and severity of his symptoms.
I am so sorry to hear what you are going through. My brother to suffers from this disease. If your brother was diagnosed a month ago, I would imagine that they have put him on mediation? If so then the side effects of this disease should cease or at least get better. Has there been a change in him?
