My bf of 6 years and 4 months thinks I’m trying to kill him. He has delusions ,paranoia, he thinks that people are sending messages to the TV he hasn’t been diagnosed yet but he broke up with me because he says he can’t be with someone who’s trying to kill him what do I do to help him get the help he needs and help us work our relationship out. We was getting married in nov on his birthday
Do you have someone who he might not be thinking these thoughts about that could help him get to the hospital? Being hospitalized to get stable is probably a good option. I don’t know of any other option, especially since he hasn’t been diagnosed. In Washington State they have a mental health crisis program called Designated Crisis Responders. Maybe they have something like that where you are? It’s mostly used by family or friends that are concerned a loved one is having a mental health crisis and needs help. They try to contact the person and evaluate if they need hospitalization voluntary or involuntary.
So sorry for you both. My son so far has trusted our family, but I’m afraid that could change as each break he gets a little bit worse. It’s pretty heartbreaking.
I’m so sorry. Little experience with someone in psychosis, except to agree that he needs help now. Can you recruit any of his family members or close friends to intervene? If he is suspicious of you, it’s unlikely he will listen to you, but maybe to someone else.
Check out if there is a NAMI group in your area you could attend and get advice. If he were related to you, you might be able to get a court order to have him evaluated, but I don’t know how that works in your county for someone who is not related. If there is a county mental health department they might have some ideas.
