I have PTSD, & I can't find help in DE...

Posted by chinchillagirl @puddinpop, Oct 31, 2020

Where can I find competent help in DE? I'm miserable, it was definitely difficult for me before COVID-19, but it's much worse now. I've been to a psychiatrist in the past. He's since passed away, but all that he wanted to talk about 5 years ago was politics, and not about helping me. My significant other shows me absolutely no affection or attention, which makes things even more difficult for me. I missing being around and talking with other people. What has gotten me through all of this so far, is my faith in God.


@puddinpop I know what it is like to be without a helpful dr to address a mental health crisis. Can you ask your primary care dr for a referral to someone? There is a website that you list your zip code on, that can offer you resources for many things: https://myhelpnavigator.auntbertha.com/

Also, you state you are in Delaware. Here is the link for tracking down a local National Alliance on Mental Illness [NAMI] office/resource in your state: https://www.nami.org/Find-Your-Local-NAMI/Affiliate?state=DE

I see it has been a while since you joined, but this is your first post. I hope you have been reading from others, and see how we can be supportive here, and relating our experiences on our journeys. Welcome to Mayo Connect. There is an existing conversation about PTSD within this Mental Health group, that you may find encouraging https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/anyone-else-with-ptsd/

Please let me know if this has been a help to you, and come back for more support!

I believe that she would be able to find good health care providers for mental health from any NAMI resource. Mayo provides the best information and patient care.
