Struggling to cope with my adult son

Topic: 

I am new to this site and have been advised to maybe try chatting with people who know my struggles.  I am a single parent to my son Jack who is 21, he has high functioning autism which was diagnosed when he was sectioned at 15. He suffers from social anxiety too and rarely leaves house without me, he self harms and has had 4 suicide attempts, the last one a couple of months. I am struggling to deal with him as he can be very verbally abusive, the more anxious he gets the worse it becomes. So I don't know how to help him
