my seventeen year old son is mental ill- he has attempted suicide numereous times and has attacked his father . He has made threats to kill me (in a dr offfice) he has been in and out of various mental hospitals for the last year- we thought we had everything under control by allowing him to stay with a friend but now he has beaten up on them and threaten to "filet me.my husband and our daughters" and eat us - he can no longer stay with them - he is currently on probation for a domestic violance - he will be 18 in feb- here is the problem--since he is only 17 we can not sign him into a mental hospital without his consent- his insurance is dead and we cant get him commited without paying a lawyer(we dont have the money) and we cant kick him out of the house- is there anything we can do to protect our other children and our selves?
