May 17, 2016 · Any women members here that have PTSD, and Acute Clinical Depression? in Mental Health

Kathy, I am so sorry for everything you are going through… I too have my battles with depression and was subjected to sexual incest as a child.
Another therapy worth looking into is Equine Therapy. I found a psychologist here in Canada that works with individuals and couples for PTSD. His area of focus is on Vets and has finely got the Canadian government to give there support in making Equine Therapy available to vets and their families. My husband is not a vet but we did go for some sessions with him and the work he facilitates while using horses as a healing tool is quite remarkable! I found the impact quite powerful and my husband and i both agree that Equine Therapy
and EMDR are very strong tools in moving towards healing. I hope your new psychiatrist can bring some new hope and help into your life. Will be thinking of you and will check back in to hear how your appointment goes. Take care! jeanne

Here is a suggestion for anyone dealing with past trauma.
I don’t have PTSD myself but my husband does and he has found that EMDR Therapy has been quite helpful.
(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
I was treated with EMDR Therapy for neglect-abuse and found it extremely helpful.
If you decide to try it, research Psychologists in your area that have experience with treating PTSD AND EMDR Therapy.
