Our expert says:
Why on earth would anyone ever take anyone to an OT for Depression ? No OT is qualified to make such a diagnosis or to treat it, especially when there are complex issues like self-cutting involved. An OT can't ever prescribe medication, so maybe ot was a misprint for GP ? But with a situation this complex, a GP isn't the right person either, and she should see a properly qualified speciialist psychiatrist, for a full assessment and careful treatment. And from the sound of it, fairly urgently, too.
