Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Gather any documentation. This is wrong in so many ways---I am disgusted. She needs to file complaint with state licensing board and ethics committee. The fact she disclosed this to you (psychiatrist told you) is illegal and malpractice.
You do not need attorney at this point. Find the medical licensing board and medical ethics board in your state. Detail what happened. Best if daughter makes complaint or at least signs it. I has to come from her, but you can help her. Licensing board can be googled easily. If you want to sue, (a good idea), get lawyer quickly. Your statute of limitations is coming up. Lawyers.com is good source - most defend doctors, but should find one that serves patients. It also appears she extorted money, so you could go to law enforcement, but may want to hold of until you hear from review board.
Finally, get daughter a psychiatrist she can trust.
Also , send copy of state complain, to state Psychiatric Association.
