I need free or cheap psychiatric help.
If I were to go to a psychiatrist right now, even with insurance, my parents would need to pay over 100 bucks for one hour. I know they’d do it for me if I asked them to, but my mom’s job is unstable and I really don’t want to them spend money from their savings which could go towards things they want or retirement money. I’ve been going through things I’m unsure of, but negative feelings that may be depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, and God knows what else. I’ve cut my wrist before, and I’ve been trying to fix myself up and research about things, thinking of ways to make myself feel better etc, and sometimes it works for a short period of time, but after a while it comes back. Also, there are some issues that I really do think I need to talk to a professional about. I really don’t think posting on forums or googling is going to do it. I really hope you guys will believe me when I say I need professional help, because I’ve been putting this off for years due to the cost and I wouldn’t want to go if it was something I’ve tried to fix up and couldn’t.
So does anyone know what I can do? There are counselors at school, but I really don’t want to go to them. I feel like they wouldn’t help as much, and also it’d cut into my classes and I have a problem with being organized, and having to miss class and make up stuff would really upset me. Actually having to be too organized is one of the things I’d like to talk to a psychiatrist, but anyways…

If you are contemplating suicide, hurting yourself, or you are seriously depressed: please, seek professional help!

Perhaps you could start out with talking with a training Psychologist. Locate a training institute/college in your area for Psycologists. They offer reduced fees. I also believe they are available on Saturdays to accomodate your school schedule.
Maybe talking on this site could help a little - many of us have similar problems!
Oh trust me I’ve tried. It just doesn’t work as well when it’s over the internet, and I really believe a psychiatrist will be able to offer insight that other people can’t. > ;
dont they have any ‘national health service’ equivilent over there?
my brother did it… wish and hope you would talk too me for a minute…please… i want too help. please at least a minute of your time! thanks! lee hird of rochdale england. please!!! no fee, no fakes just a person who has been affected by it and WANTS to help!!!!!
maybe reading up on the subjects of concern to you might help until you can see a pshychiatrist.
Talk to someone on this site. This site. Post a short version of your story, not too long. I’m sure there is someone here going through what you’re going through and they can give you some pointers/advise/tools that may help.
leehir, if you want to talk to me, my email is i> small>(email removed) /small> /i> and I also have msn messenger. What would you prefer to communicate with?
I’ve read a lot of stuff, talked to a lot of people, and etc. I’d just like to know if there’s any cheap or free way to get psychiatrist help, because I’ve heard of really poor or unemployed doing it..but I don’t know anyone like that so I can’t ask.
The school councellors are qualified, free psychiatric help right there for the picking. go to them.
read them all… been 3 years now and now starting a family of my own. i could tell you all the bla bla bla but you have probably been told! im no wise man but i know why you would want too and if i might have just one minute. im in england so no cops bursting threw the door. just me and you…please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i’m 27 and well out of school But a voice of experiance!!!!!!!!!!

Umm yes, but I mean do you just wanna talk on this thread, via email, msn messenger, or smth else?
never thought i’d even be here… but here is good! thanks!
Oh shoot, I accidentally posted in the other thread, but okay. Soo..where do we start
Just don’t know what to do. My husband is out of work and so am I. We were just married 4 mos. ago. He stays literally in bed all day and night, sometimes he will get up and get something to eat. When he get’s up he’s quite abusive and angry. He is pushing me aways and wants nothing to do with me. He is taking some medication prescribed by his last dr. while he still had Kaiser Ins. He just swears at me and calls me names and I don’t get angry back at him but honestly it’s getting really trying. I realize he’s depressed but he will not admit it.
What do I do?
make your own post, for a start lol.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I can’t keep a boyfriend, I have gained so much weight that I’m almost obese. I gave up my daughter at the age of 10 to my mother so I could live with my boyfriend and a few years later he threw me out. I’m so depressed! Please help me

If there are any psychiatrist who would be willing to answer 2 questions for me without charge , I would really appreciate . - - - Question 1. - Could a severely depressed person still be capable of understanding and carrying out simple instructions ? - - - - Questions 2. - Could a severely depressed person still be capable of reporting to a dead end job to work on a regular and continuing basis ? - - Thank you very much for any feedback on this topic .
