Hello, I am very sorry that your mother is not willing to take you to see a psychiatrist. I am not sure what type of help you are looking for from a Q&A service like this website, as you are an adult, so you do not need your mother's permission to go to a psychiatrist. Also your primary care physician can refer you to a psychiatrist as well if you need it. So what exactly is your mental health question that you would like an answer to in regards ***** ***** situation?
