I just don't get it, so many people I know who constantly deal with the same problems that really impact their lives and they wont go to a therapist.
I imagine it's a pride thing for most. It's hard for many people to admit that they have weaknesses and there are things they can't tackle in life by themselves.
Not to mention the cost of therapy can be very expensive. Even with insurance most deductibles for mental health run $50 a visit. That's not easy for some middle class families to pay out 3-4 times a month especially when many think it isn't something they necessarily need.
If you are on any kind of assistance and can't afford the higher prices therapists, have fun getting an appointment in the next 3 months.
The mental health system is seriously screwed up more than the people that need the help. .
