I am very depressed. I have been employed for over a year. I am out of funds. I must abandon things and move. When the answer is "You need a Job", what role can the mental health profession serve?


Not a blessed thing. The good thing about this site is if you don't feel it has been helpful, there is no need to pay for it The only thing medication and therapy can do is give you is the will power to keep up the battle and possibly develop strategies that you may not have thought of. If depression is getting in the way, low cost therapy and medication, maybe of use. However anyone who is making any type of guarantees is a charlatan. Mental health is only worth it if it brings you closer to your goal.. So good luck and best wishes
