Professional help and treatment may be necessary if your psychological problem is severe and debilitating. It can be literally a lifesaver sometimes. I will list health professionals, treatments, and services available in the following sections.
But before proceeding further, it's important to mention a couple of things. There is a great deal of misunderstanding, stigma, fear, and false beliefs about treatment, especially about medication. For example, I've seen many who worry that treatment would change their personality, make them crazy, turn them into a zombie, make them addicted, or will damage their brain and body.
I strongly encourage you to share your concerns about treatment with your doctor. It is your right to know the risks and benefits of any treatment that you are going to receive. Your doctor should discuss different options so that you, together with your doctor, can choose the best treatment..
