he's showing a lot of schizophrenic symptoms atm, talking about souls and devils and pedophiles and he has a knife in his hand and he's 16 and idk what to do? he wont let go of the knife so i cnt take him to a hospital unless he gets arrested and my dad who i called up (the only sane one in the family) thinks hes making it all up. And obviously a GP appoointment is too far away.

Call the police! They'll be able to restrain him if you can't (do you think he'll get violent?) and take him to a hospital if he needs help

I know this was a week ago, but call the police if you are in any kind of danger. They will arrive, and likely call an ambulance. Social services could be a good idea a bit more long term. They're able to give support and get you in contact with the right people. You really need to talk with you dad seriously about this. I've been in this situation for years and years now and you really do need outside support. You certainly can take him to the hospital, though. Just don't put yourself in danger to do so.
