In brief: Encourage treatment

Key success factor in recovery from mental problem is treatment.
Learn from him his experiences. Go with him when he sees his psychiatrist. Talk to his psychiatrist to learn everything you can about his problem and treatment. Usually parents are happy that their children care about their well-being. If he is reluctant, tell him you want to support him and that you may face similar problem one day.
