Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. May I ask, what is your specific mental health question that you would like an answer to in regards ***** ***** situation?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Who would we go to for a diagnosis? He can't keep a job for more than a week or two and needs to get some help or he will be on the streets as he can't pay his rent,this problem renders him immobile for days sometimes a few weeks.

Thank you for your response. The best place to get a firm diagnosis on his mental health issues would be to see a Psychologist or a Psychiatrist. Most likely there is a longer wait time to see a psychiatrist as there are fewer psychiatrists out there than psychologists, so if he wants a quick diagnosis than seeing a psychologist would be best for him. He would still need treatment though and that will most likely require both therapy and medications, so eventually he will have to see a psychiatrist for medication management, but a psychologist will diagnose him and start to treat him with therapy.
