Assume for a moment that they did notice something about their son. What could they do? In most states it is extremely difficult to have some one committed to a phsychiatric facility. They must be threatening themselves or others before they can be hospitalized, and that is only for 72 hours of observation. If they don't threaten anyone they must be released. I know I had a son with lots of problems and tried to get him help only to be told tough luck.
