Our expert says:
Its a pity that mental health takes such a low priority in government health policies and provisions, as its clear that private practice is very busy, as your November appointment shows. As you have had problems with other ADS or with tolerating the initial side-effects, it makes good sense for you to see a good local shrink. Check whether you might be able to arrange to see a counsellor / psychotherapist to start CBT (Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) sooner --- the Anxiety-Depression Support Group, number on this pafe ) can help you findn one ; and indeed one of their support groups could also be helpful for you. And talk with Lifeline, too.
