I'm trying to find a psychiatrist to help treat my ADD. I got referrals from my therapist - they either don't take insurance or aren't accepting new patients. I used our EAP therapist search site - again the ones I've called aren't accepting new patients. Why is this so hard? If I had a serious mental condition that left me unable to function what would I do? Or if I didn't have the means to keep trying or searching for other options? It just blows my mind that my choices seem to be pay $600 for an initial appt or get my PCP to prescribe me meds.
Something is wrong with this picture.
