|keinen Halt im Leben haben|
How can you say "Er hat keinen Halt im Leben", as in, he doesn't have any structure, nobody he can trust, nobody he can talk to, nobody who looks after him ... all of those things?
Thank you in advance for your ideas! <3

Yes, you can say this. Or:
Ein unstabiler Mensch.
Some examples from Google Books: "Smiley had no direction in his life; time and time again, given choices, he'd make the wrong one. He had no anchor, no source of strength, no hope."
"Like driftwood washed out to sea, I had no anchor, no way of knowing if I could live up to my father's expectations."
"One word I had throughout the first year and a half of my mother's death was ' unmoored.' I felt that I had no anchor, that I had no home in the world."
"I was overcome with Helen's situation. It hit me that she had no anchor, no foundation."
may depend on context .....
also no stability / support .....
