My son just turned 17 last month and has a history of mental issues/ behavior issues... From depression to bipolar being ruled out to ODD etc.... He has been placed on anti depressants and mood stabilizers in the past that hardly had any effect at all. He recently served 9 months in a juvenile detention center for buying synthetic marijuana and while there was seen by a psychiatrist that seemed to really know my son after about 2 weeks!!!! He told me that the medication was not really doing much and that most of my sons problems were him choosing to make the right choices....that being said the past week or so he has become obsessed with becoming a millionaire and famous singer.... And has told my mother today that he sold his soul to the devil, something else he has become fascinated with, that lots of famous rappers have done the same, I have read this on line about some rappers but I am extremely concerned about the way my son is thinking, I am wondering if I should have him evaluated at a hospital for mental illness or not ??? Please give me some advice, I feel as though I have exhausted every avenue of trying to help my son and now I have to worry about this😔Answer Question
