That’s defeating 🙁 Please pick up a phone and schedule an appt. Anxiety will break you down until you can’t function. I know it’s tough, and you feel like you were turned away, but give yourself another chance to get the help you need. You got the courage up once, try again until someone helps you. Fight for yourself!

@FutureMrsShrewsbury:  +1. Also try not look at so negatively. When you have an appointment, there will be someone there to give you the help you need. Stay strong.

They should have made an appointment for you! Call them and ask for an appointment, it’s easier than walking all the way there 🙂

Sadly psychiatric care is not on-demand unless you threaten to kill yourself or someone else.  Set up an appointment and come here for support until that appointment.  While waiting for your appointment, I would also recommend you check out walk-in hours.

Check their website and find out the next walk-in time – go early, cause there’s always a line up!  They should have made you an appt right there, but help them out on this and phone or email in.  Good for you for having the courage!!

@MissPatience:  See your GP, s/he can give you a referral to a therapist with a schedule that works for you.

@joya_aspera:  Agreed. My gyno always asks me about my mental health (among other things), and lets me know that she can get me a referral if I ever need one (I don’t have insurance, unfortunately). Hell, she saw that I had a rash on my stomach a couple of years ago, asked me several questions about it, gave me advice on treating it, and told me to come back if it didn’t get better.

Go back!!! I went to the counseling center when I was in college and they didn’t have time in the schedule for me to get in for counseling, so I just got put on medication. I should have advocated more for myself. I wish I had known better. But I would go back or talk to someone else (family doctor, gyno, etc…) who might help you get a referral.

I’m back in therapy now, and I’m going to see a psychiatrist on Monday. It is so hard to admit that things are going so well and that you need help, but it’s important and things will get better.
