Need help for my son

Patient

Q: I don't know how to help my son anymore. He is 15 with an IQ of 160, until we moved to Texas he has had nothing but failing grades. He lies and steals from me and the friends we are staying with. I has gotten way out of control. Grounding and taking everything away does not work at all. It's like he has no concience of how his actions affect others. He has been hospitalized twice for suicidal thoughts with a plan and the second was an accual attempt. There was no results with the counseling after the hospital stays either. I need help.
