What if I can't afford a psychotherapist, psychologist etc? Thanks for your response but here in Canada those professionals that you recommended me to see charge $120 per session and I can't afford that.
many therapists use a 'sliding scale' for billing, particularly at training centers or community mental health centers. Ask your physician or you insurance company for a referral to an affordable treatment center.
I am also from Canada. We have universal health care - health care available to all who require it. You need to go to your family doctor and have him/her refer you to a mental health specialist. I'm wondering - are you a Canadian citizen with a valid health card? If not, I'm not sure of the procedure.
