Help me navigate the basics of the mental health system

My only real experience with mental health practitioners was a brief stint with my free university counseling where I tried one or two medications for anxiety and depression. They didn't do anything for me and I became disheartened and left the idea behind for the past few years.

Get Therapy. Yeah, I'm going to need a little more help than that...

I think I might be a little depressed. Sometimes more than a little, but usually at least a little. And I know I have issues with anxiety. So, I've decided to get therapy. And I've called my insurance to figure out how to go about doing that. So my question is: now what? I don't know if I need a psychiatrist or a psycologist. I know that a psychiatrist perscribes medication, but I don't know if I need that. Knowing that seems like their job. [more inside]

How do I get better at being in therapy?

I’ve got an appointment with a new therapist next week. I’m really excited, because wow do I have some things to work out, but I’m also wary because I’m crap at being in therapy. This new therapist seems to be a good fit, at least on paper and according to a recommendation I’ve gotten. Does anyone have any constructive ideas about how to be a good patient in therapy?

I have to pay to have him testify against me? Pshaw.

TherapyContractModificationFilter: The contract my shrink wants me to sign has a paragraph saying that if he is asked to testify in a court case involving me (even if it's for the other side), I have to pay him. I'm not inclined to sign such a contract. Is such a clause anywhere near normal? [more inside]

Now what?

Maybe I have a couple problems. The first one probably stems from the second. Insurance won't cover therapy or medication. Is there any place in Baltimore, MD that offers free or very low-cost assistance? Thank you.

Recommend a Boston therapist

I need a therapist. I recently moved to the Boston area, I don't really know anybody, and Psychology Today isn't doing it for me. I know that I'm clinically depressed (runs in the family, and relatives who are docs say so), and it's gotten worse of late. It's ruining my job, my life, and my sleep. Where do I find a top notch psychiatrist/psychologist?
