    So yesterday I saw a new psychiatrist. He was asking me all these questions and I answered them all honestly. Half way through him asking me questions he goes "I can't help you, you are way to severe for me. You need to go to a hospital or something because I don't know who can help you."

    How is that for confidence?

    I've had therapists tell me that stuff before. It's only because they're not experienced enough to handle some people's issues. Its more about them than it is about you, trust me, because I have a therapist now who is experienced in dealing with my issues (and I had another good one before) and it's worth the effort when you do find one. If you're severely depressed/suicidal and told her/him that, that's why they mentioned hospitalization. They only do that if you admit you're suicidal or homocidal.

    he should give you the name of another therapist who's more experianced.
    the therapist should also put on his signup sheet thing that he isn't experianced enough to take the cases of people who are suicidal or homocidal or severely depressed.
