If he actually has mental health issues that are so bad he can't live on his own, then he ought to be under treatment. But I don't think his parents are required to have him living with them while he gets it.

The judge doesn't seem to have ordered a mental health evaluation (though I don't know whether a judge can do so in this sort of case.) Is there any evidence he actually has any diagnosable condition? or are the people in question just leaping to conclusions?

Plus which, if he actually does have a condition preventing him from holding down a job and preventing him from living on his own, how would he be in any condition to be raising a child? That requires more responsibility, not less. (though it's not clear to me whether he's trying to get custody, or visitation rights; and if visitation rights, whether he wants unsupervised visitation.)
