Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Welcome, I am a professional counselor, behavioral-consultant and relationship expert. I'd like to ask a few questions to better understand your situation and your question.
In fact, you've provided some very solid information with what you've written. Part of my role here is help visitors clarify their question.
Let me start by asking: what do you mean more specifically when you write help me in your presenting question?
In a question and answer service like this one it's best if we come up with a more specific question so that I can get to work writing you a detailed and hopefully, strong and practical answer to your question.
I notice that you're off line right now. I'll check back first thing in the morning for your response.
By the way, it may be helpful for you to think of the top 2 or 3 specific problems or behaviors that you need help with. I look forward to your thoughts here. You can leave more comments and information for me if you like, that I can read over in the early morning before leaving my next reply. Hopefully we'll connect and be able to chat. Otherwise we can leave messages for each other and getting to your answer shouldn't take more than a few exchanges.
My daughter has been a binge eater for quite some time now. She'll get some control and then loses it again. She now has ballooned to 170 lbs, 40 lbs over her ideal weight. She lives in Boston and I live in Tucson, AZ. She called me in crisis and does not know what to do. She has no insurance and makes little money. Where can she go to get help for this problem?
Ok. So if I'm hearing you correctly, you are looking for treatment resources for your daughter in her area, but resources that are free for lack of finances? Is that correct?
If so in what specific area, state, county and city or town (if it's ok to ask)?
I'll do some research once I have your response. If I can't find anything then they we can recirculate your question for other Experts to consider and work on. You don't pay for an answer here unless it is genuinely satisfying to you.
She lives in the Boston, MA area. The binge eating is a recent part of the anxiety attacks she has experienced for years. Her voice cracks leaving her embarrassed to talk. Then she also has been diagnosed with polycystic overies creating a great deal of excess body hair thus creating more social anxieties.
I have not been able to find the kind of service that you are looking for. I am going to recirculated this question for all other mental health experts to look at. You may want to create a new question that asks specifically for what you're looking for: For example: "Looking for free intensive treatment program for....... in Boston area" or how ever you would fraise it. That would allow the experts closer to that area with more specialized training or knowledge to help you find what you're looking for.
I wish you and your family the very best,
