I need help. I have recently been hospitalized and releaserd for major depression. I feel like I am regressing. I am trying to find support groups and advise. I know now that I must fight this everyday but I do not feel like I know how or that I have the right tools.
Hi levon, Welcome to healing well forum, we are glad to have you join us here. Sometimes after a hospitalization it can be difficult on a person to find the right balance they need and can easily fall back into a depressed state. Perhaps you can contact the hospital that you were at and ask if they have outpatient services? Most of them do. As for support groups if you reside in the US you can call the Division of Mental Health (every state has one) which will be in the government section of your local phone book and ask them for referrals and or information to support groups. They should be able to provide you with some info in that area.
I am also wondering if when you were released the hospital set you up with a doctor appointment (psychiatrist) and or counseling? If they have then perhaps you can give the doc a call and see if you can get a sooner appointment?
Just some suggestions...I hope this helps...Take care
