Help Clint(Autistic) Recover from Suicide attempt

My Sweet son Clint is Autistic & attempted suicide on March 9, 2020 at the beginning of CV19 lockdown in Orlando. 
The therapy he needs is called TMS Therapy & has zero side effects, this is where we need to go We have done an assessment there & he is a great candidate. 
Without the therapy he just attempted to injure himself again on June 22, 2020.
Clint is currently in the hospital, he may be in for a few more weeks. I need to set up his care for when he comes home. 
Clint threw himself out of a car on his way home from his therapist's office after she told him to give up his dream of being a professional artist because of his disability & train for a job bagging groceries instead. She killed his dreams, hopes & desires. 
He suffered a severely broken arm & multiple injuries on his back, arms & legs in the accident. 
Clint also suffers from Depression,  PTSD, Tourette's Syndrome, Asperger's Syndrome  & Anxiety Disorder from being assaulted by the police in January 2019 & then assaulted again by staff members at the behavioral hospital where he was taken. This all happened because he set his backpack down on the ground & was pacing in front of church because he was worried as his mom was in the hospital sick. His lack of communication led to his being Baker Acted against his will & the traumatic events that followed. 
He  has never emotionally recovered from this trauma & changed from a kind, happy, outgoing young man to an angry, paranoid, self-hating person. He is not the same person, he tries to hurt himself constantly to end his emotional pain.
He needs intensive trauma therapy. 
We have found several therapies that will help him heal & begin to live a full life again. 
He  is a very talented painter/artist & his dream is to open up a gallery/café in Orlando  for other Autistic people to be able to exhibit & sell their paintings. He also wants to go to school to study art & theology.
His faith in God is all that has kept him going. 
As with many Autistic Adults, Clint has very few real friends, only his 2 sisters who live far away from him. He is very lonely.
Once he is able to get healing therapy he can open his gallery, make new friends & co workers at his gallery & help others heal as well with art therapy classes at the gallery.
One of the therapies to help is called TMS Therapy. It is non-invasive & has great success with anxiety & depression.  The cost for this therapy is $8800 for each 6 months of ongoing therapy. We estimate it can take at least 2 years to complete. This is outpatient and local. 
The other options that would help include a residential program for 45 days for PTSD therapy where they use many types of therapy to heal from trauma. 
His insurance does not cover any of these therapies & he needs them desperately. The cost for this program is $1,300 per day for a minimum of 45 days. 

I am a single mother have been home on unpaid leave since March 10th,  I am the only income for the household. I  was permanently laid off on June 8th.  My focus right now is to take Clint to therapy & get him well & restore his desire to live & enjoy life. 

Please consider helping Clint heal so he can help the many Autistic Adults who want to use art to express themselves enjoy Art Therapy with Clint. 
We need the funds ASAP, Clint just got out of the hospital again on June 24th for another suicide attempt.
