What help is available in the UK?

I've experienced some pretty hefty trauma ranging from my childhood to young adulthood. I tried the doctors once but they gave me SSRIs that didn't really do anything even in a high dose, and 6 weeks of therapy but the therapist was unhelpful and dismissive.

I got through the next couple of years by buckling the fuck down, but I had a big set back and am finding it really hard to recover on my own.

The therapist previously tried to give me a diagnostic label I knew didn't fit, and it makes me very hesitant to seek help. It's made me fearful I'm going to get dumb labels that limit my options, and I really don't need that for having sought help.

What's available to me in the UK on this matter?

Pic unrelated, a funny ice cream.

I think I need ongoing help, not just a few weeks of therapy. I think I need to have that system in place, even if it gets slowly phased out, but I don't know how to seek that system.

I just want to have enough strength to build my life.

Not much to be honest. Thank the Tories!

Oh, so there's nothing? I don't really have close people to help me through this either. I guess if I'm completely on my own I should just use an exit strategy.

Things just aren't gonna get better.

Could you say more about that? How Tories affected mental health help in uk?
>>
>>17384191
Large budget cuts, especially to disabled people, mental health services, and large chunks of the NHS.

...Where did that money go?

Banks.

There are multiple options. You could try a therapist again, but ad you said youre hesistant, you could also Look for a support group.
If you are not too biased for that, you can always talk to a priest. Most have some basic education in therapeutics but also deal with people on some other Levels so they might be worth a shot for someone to talk to.
Suicide is a meme. Its really Not an option. Either you die regretting or you live regretting. There is definitely a way out, dont let some incompetent therapist be the end of you.

My body hurts, I have lots of painful memories, the UK has put everyone my age in impossible debt situations, I have few friends, my family sucks, and I had people try to sabotage my grades.

I'm in a pretty bad place. I feel isolated, and like if I need help, I'll be punished for it.

I really don't want to live in this situation. It's horrible. But I don't know how to make this better when I have so much burden to try and move with me.

Try speaking to your GP. They'll no doubt fob you off with some pills, or give you a number to call. Try contacting a charity called mind.

Good luck, you're going to need it. Am in a similar situation, and there's fuck all help.
