All I want is treatment. All they want is my money....


Itís beyond discouraging when all I want is answers, an evaluation, a plan, a guide but all I get is ignored emails/phone calls, and the only people who respond are those who arent specialized in what I am looking for and who wont help me find someone who is. I donít want to see just anyone. Ive been there and done that. At this point i just want to be free and its now been months and I have made no progress because of the expense and lack of support from the professionals i have been in contact with....I have tried to accomplish small tasks on my own and while I make little progress, I know itd be a thousand times better and perhaps faster with guidance...Iím very close to giving up...

I so feel you at that. I've been feeling really depressed after a whole year of terrible events going on in my life, but I just can't afford any treatment... why is mental health so expensive? I understand that psychologists and therapists need the money, but oh dear, it sure is really expensive... what about us who can't afford it? What are we supposed to do? Deal with everything on our own?

I'm so sorry you are going through that... sadly there are those who claim themselves to be "professionals" when in fact they are just waiting for the money.

Probably because it takes so much money & time to get qualified as a psych doctor in general never mind becoming a specialist in a particular area, is why treatment is so expensive, lots of debt.

They also probably want to live the highlife aswell.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Hi Mystic. Out of curiosity, what is it that you're looking for, that requires specialised treatment?

IDue to the nature of this forum section, I understand if you're just venting. However, if you were to perhaps bullet point these, maybe other forum members can advise on a resource if it was known specifically what you were looking for.

Might be worth a shot.
