Unstable Emotions, Often Rampage, Hurt Others, Can Not Socialize?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
From the description you gave, it can only be concluded that your child is indeed likely to experience a mental disorder because your child has experienced significant life function disorders (unable to study and complete college, not interacting socially, cannot maintain relationships with others too, including beating parents themselves). However, from your description alone, it cannot be concluded with certainty what mental disorder your child has. These symptoms may still be caused by psychotic disorders such as acute psychosis or schizophrenia, mood disorders such as depression or bipolar disorder, adjustment disorders, personality disorders, etc. To be able to get a definite diagnosis of what mental disorder is being experienced, a direct examination should be carried out on the patient.
If indeed you feel that your child's behavior has the potential to endanger himself (your child has the potential to run away and disappear or potentially commit suicide or hurt himself) or endanger those around him (including yourself), then you can take your child directly to the hospital have treatment facilities for psychiatric patients without the need to seek your child's consent. Your child's condition clearly requires an examination from a psychiatrist and delaying the examination will not make your child's condition better or make your child more cooperative to be taken to a psychiatrist too. If your child does not have good insight into his own condition (your child always feels fine, is not sick and there is nothing wrong with his behavior), then you will be very difficult to persuade your child to see him or her to see a doctor. You can take your child to the doctor for other reasons (for example, asking your child to accompany you to the doctor), or ask someone else for help to take your child to a hospital that does have a psychiatric patient care facility.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
