17. Her husband threatened divorce, it didn't come from the therapist

But it's just him mania talking, trying to preserve the delusion.

Don't get the boss involved. Too much stigma and he will feel humiliated when the episode is over.

I wouldn't call the police unless he his violent. A misunderstanding can end in tragedy.

Psychiatric holds can only be done when the person is a danger to himself or others. If she can get him to the ER, and he is willing, they could do a voluntary commitment. But he doesn't sound ready for that.
