I hate how absolutely everywhere now has the "we can't let anyone give out any advice about mental health, because you should be seeing someone instead." Have any of these people actually tried to see someone? It takes upwards of a year to get to a position where a mental health person can see you and know enough to be helpful. And that's if you're lucky and live in an area where someone who knows how to treat you is taking patients. So all that really happens is "screw you, you're not allowed to get any help at all, because we wouldn't want to be taking the place of the professional you have no access to anyway."
