Welcome to the forum first of all. It is hard to get people to get help. As long as he is still alive and okay, there really isn't much you can do other than to try to reach out to him. He sounds like he has isolated himself from the world. He need counsleing and possibly medication. But if he just knows that you are there, I am sure that it helps. You are doing the best tht you can. You can't make him get help, but you can suggest it. Even to get him to open up about things. I know that you are worried. Say a prayer for him. That often helps. Just don't give up on him. I hope that your friend comes out of isolation and gets some help. Keep posting. It does a person good to get things out and let's see what other advice you get.
