Oh, that's so wonderful you were able to get her into some treatment. But I know the financial side of things can be discouraging. So, I'll be continuing to keep your family in my prayers. Hang in there!

She has been an inpatient treatment now for 24 hours she wouldn't have to the hospital it's going to be expensive I know that and I'm willing to do whatever because money has no value on her life I just wish Healthcare was free I need to focus on her and work is just really hard

Oh, my heart goes out to you and your family. And I'm sorry you're having trouble finding the right help for your daughter. Like Leslie said, I do think it's important to find a good counselor or treatment center for her. But with concerns about finances, perhaps check with some faith-based organizations? For instance, I know Focus on the Family will offer a free phone consultation with a licensed counselor (855-382-5433). Or you could check with a local church to see if they have suggestions. But I'll certainly be keeping you and your daughter in my prayers in the meantime...

I'm so sorry! I can't imagine what that is like. My son talked about suicide and that scared the hell out of me. He was admitted to a psychiatric facility which I think was the best thing for him. But you can't afford that, but are you able to connect her with a therapist and psychiatrist? I imagine she has them if she's already on antidepressants. Do you know why she stopped taking her medications, what triggered it for her?
You're not a failure, she's quite lucky to have a loving parent. Look up online DBT, you're probably familiar with that but it could be helpful as a refresher for coping skills. I'm sure you can also find free family resources to help you both.
Do you have health insurance? I really think she could benefit from inpatient treatment.
