Please can someone from England or the UK tell me what the procedures are for teenagers under the age of 18 getting help for depression.? Will I be able to get free treatment?? By that, I don't mean medication; I don't want medication.? I either want to see on a psychologist or therapist.? I'm ruling out counsellors and psychiatrists, from what I've heard from other people of my age, I don't want to have to go through the same thing.? Do I have to see the doctor first to be referred, or is there another route I can take?

Thanks,
Enigma

It makes sense. Having two people go through this just got me thinking how they would do this with people who have involuntary movements and people with other movement disorders. :)

The one thing that helped me cope was what my mom told me: that I should be grateful that I live in country where I have access to affordable dental care. There are many places in the world where people just let their...
