Can you get 'proffesional help' without your parents knowing? - July 26th 2009, 05:50 PM

My boyfriend is practically forcing me to get a therapist or something but I do NOT want m parents to know. I have my reasons, don't feel like going into detail. I don't think there's a way, but just making sure. I'm 16, and can drive myself very soon. But I have no job and not a lot of money to pay for it or anything. Plus it'd have to go on insurance and stuff...

I'm basically in a cycle where every few months I get really far down and come very close to killing myself. Every time he says it gets worse and that I will do it eventually... I don't know. First time I said I was going to I promised I wouldnt cause it would hurt him. last time I promised I would give it 2 years to move out from my parents and stuff. But he says it will just get worse and says I need proffesional help...

Take me seriously.
I dare you.

No, I don't think you can. You may be able to drive but technicly, you're a minor. Now, if you really feel you need help, you probably tell them that you want to see a therapist, but you don't have to tell them why. You can also ask the therapist to keep everything confidential if you want.

Hope this helps.

Someone save me from myself...

In the UK it's possible if you're 16+, you just have to get to the mail first if they decide to send home a letter of when you're appointment will be. What you say to them is completely confidential. However I don't know the rules if you live in another country.
