Hello, I am very sorry that your grand-daughter is suffering from depression and is currently having suicidal ideations, I can understand how distressing this can be for her and for you. May I ask, what exactly is your mental health question that you would like me to assist you with today? And also because she states she wants to "kill herself" have you called 911 to have her hospitalized?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
she needs to learn how to love herself .she does not think any thing about her is ok.
Mental Health Professional: Dr. Z, Psychologist replied 3 years ago
Well right now she needs to be hospitalized immediately if she is a danger to herself. The acute hospitalization will make sure she is safe and being medicated to lessen these depressive symptoms, so you have to call 911 immediately and tell the operator about your grand-daughter and why you believe she may be a danger to herself. Than after the acute hospitalization she may be referred to a hospital program called Intensive Outpatient Program or IOP. This is an intense form of half-day or full-day outpatient activities to help a patient adjust to the reality of a mental health disorder, in this case depression, and to help them to better cope with said depression. Her medications and this form of group therapy will help your grand-daughter, but she would still need to see a psychologist for individual therapy. I can recommend a few good psychologists, but I would need to know what zip code your grand-daughter lives in. Long-term treatment for depression is usually done on an outpatient basis with therapy and medications, she does not need to be hospitalized for long-term, which is a good thing for her quality of life. So once you provide me with your zip code, I can recommend a few good psychologists near her that can help her to overcome this depression.

Thank you give me a few minutes to compile a list of suitable psychologists in her area. But remember though she needs to be taken to the nearest ER immediately if she is a danger to herself where she will be medicated and referred to a psychiatrist for long-term medication management. But medications only treat the symptoms, not the core causes, this is why the therapy with a psychologist is so important.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
