A family friend of mine has a previous diagnosis of schizophrenia (not sure how recent). He is refusing any medication, or interventions with mental health services as he is extremely paranoid and does not trust them. He hears voices (refers to them as the people) named as Biff, Adam and others, and will engage in conversations with them. I would describe him as living in a different ‘reality’, as he is incredibly delusional. He has said he would ‘take the voices with him when he goes’ which I assumed he was referring to a possible suicide attempt. He has recently become homeless also. I’m unsure with what to do next, whether I try and speak directly to his GP (if even possible) or what my other options are to get him support. Any advice?
