A friend of mine, "X," has recently started to display worrying mental health symptoms. I'm a recent friend of his, and I've been discussing the situation with "F," who has known him much longer. F has also been in contact with X's grandfather, who is his most stable source of familial support. What is our best move, as friends, to get him help? Details below. [more inside]

Depressed and without health insurance

I don't have health insurance right now, but I do get an allowance through work to go toward a private, individual plan. I haven't purchased a plan quite yet, and I'm wondering if seeing a therapist now might cause problems for me later. I also don't understand how pre-existing conditions are defined when it comes to mental health issues. (I live in Washington state.) [more inside]

Awesome Austin Therapist?

Austin Therapist Recommendations: A friend is looking for a therapist to work through some issues. He wants someone who is active in conversation and is willing to confront him on things when necessary. He's had therapists in the past who were nice but too passive, and just listened more than they offered ideas and suggestions. The ideal therapist would listen without judging but would help stimulate new ideas and change in his life. Do you know of anyone like this?

How do I go about finding it anyway? [more inside]

How do you find a therapist?

Related to this question, what's a good way to find a qualified therapist, especially to look for help with depression? I don't actually have a personal physician (aside from the guy who's name is on my chart at the HMO).
