My son has been diagnosed with depression and anxiety and PTSD mostly caused from the abuse he received from his father. He recently tried to kill himself and was hospitalized in a psych ward. He will be released as early as Monday and I have been told that I need to mae our house safe for him. What does this mean? I have removed his knife collection, but what else do I need to think about? He is not supposed to be allowed to play alone in his room and he is supposed to be kept busy, but do I need to remove toys from his room? What about TV shows he watches and video games he plays, do I need to be more strict in these areas? He is only 12 and because of this event and his age, I have been told that the likelihood that he will try again at some point is high. So i want to do everything reasonable to eep him safe, but I don't want him to feel like a prisoner or that he doesn't have fun any more either. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
