Well, as in any speiality one can't just admit oneself to any hospital ; imagine how messy that could get ! . But what you need is to see a good local psychiatrist who can assess your problems and advise on the best way to deal with them. If the pair of you agreed that a period in hospital would be the best way to help, he could arrange that for you. A voluntary admission to hospital is easily arranged, and much the best way of aranging an admission. Compulsory admissions only occur in special circumstances and are avoided wherever possible

Yes, a voluntary admission is done through a psychiatrist. If you go to a teaching hospital or a state hospital, seeing a psychiatrist is not nearly as expensive as a private one. Sometimes universities have clinics where you could see one.
