My brother has been in a psychotic mode for most of the year. My parents and I have tried getting him help and having him get help himself but he says that there is nothing wrong with him and refuses to take any medication or receive help. I had him committed involuntarily about four years ago and that did nothing for him. He did seem to be better after that or he just started hiding his symptoms better. He is almost thirty and recently moved back in with our parents. Unfortunately my parents had to call the police on him several times this year due to him braking things and just being out of control. The officers have always been nice and understanding with him but they could not do anything because he was not a danger to himself or others. My parents also knew that he had an old shotgun that was handed down to him from family, they tried looking for it whenever they could, i.e., him not being home. They could never find the gun. Fast forward to a couple weeks later that my mom came home to the entire house being wrecked. He had ripped out every cord that he could find out of the walls, he smashed the cable and electrical boxes to pieces, and he threw away all of the food in the house, etc. My mom immediately left due to my dad not being home and feeling unsafe. When my dad received my mom’s call he called the police and headed home. When my dad entered the house my brother was right there yelling at him to “Get out, get out!” And then, Travis had the shotgun in his hand and lowered it at my dad and told him to get out of the house again. My dad slowly left the house waited for the police to arrive. They did arrive and handcuffed Travis and arrested him. This was all in the beginning of August. He is being held at our detention center not receiving any help and his court date is not until the middle of January. I just do not know what to do or how I can help him. He can’t live the rest of his life like this. It is just not fair to him or to us. Any advice or suggestions would be so much appreciated and thank you for reading my story.
