According to a source, the actor, who was being treated in Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre after his suicide attempt, is in a bad mental shape, and therefore is being watched round the clock.
"Owen is in bad mental shape but said he is thankful to be alive," People quoted the source, as saying.
"He knows he came close to ending his life, and he is happy that he was saved from himself. He is basically at home with people watching him 24/7," the source added.
The actor slashed his wrists, and reportedly took an overdose of pills last weekend.
His brother found him and quickly alerted the cops, who rushed Wilson to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
