My ds dealing with the following:
Suit mate is dealing with serious issue and, as a result, shared with my ds that they felt hopeless and considered self-harming. My ds reached out to RA and shared his concerns and all three spoke together and end result was this young adult wanted space and locked oneself in room for the night. RA then told my ds to keep an eye on things and let RA know if anything changes. This student has pretty much remained in their room, not sleeping, not eating and just gaming to pass the time away. This started last weekend and has been ongoing. Student is not attending classes. He did leave the room for a while once over the weekend and got some food with my ds but then became very angry/aggressive. Moods have been very extreme. He has been awake for over 24 hours straight (at a minimum) since Monday. My ds is really struggling because he knows something is very wrong but can't get anyone to listen. This is now taking its toll on him. He tried the student advocate office which sent him to the mental health office - and they offered my ds counseling for anxiety/depression. My ds is so upset that he can't get anyone to help. He has been told over and over - the person has to come forth to ask for help. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know this is tricky because it is an adult but waiting until he decides to come forth could be too late. Am I missing some resource that I could point my ds towards that someone would listen?
