Need help for my 18 year old son who is spiraling into depression & dissociation. He has PSTD & social anxiety.

And me - lost everything, absolutely everything to Sandy, then lost my job, then was diagnosed with cancer, and last week, told my only sister has terminal cancer. And -- dealing with my son was is lashing out at me constantly with the most hateful words.

Forget even finding a good therapist, I can barely get anyone to even answer my calls. When they do - they are booked and refer me to someone else - who is also booked.

Yes, I know about the emergency room and the mobile response unit. It is just that we have already been thru so much trauma and drama - then I am afraid that would put my son over the edge.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Check your local church for free therapy. You may find better help finding a therapist by posting in state specific.
