Help : My 13 year old needs help she is... - Mental Health Sup...
Hello and welcome to this supportive community. Your daughter is what I call in the teenage years, her hormones are all over the place and she is rebelling against any and all authority. However, she is only thirteen and it is illegal that she is drinking alcohol and staying out all hours. You also say something quiet telling 'doesn't handle change well'. May I ask what change and what is she rebelling against please? The answer to these questions may tell us a lot about what is going on with her right now.
Also seeing your GP and school phycologist may well be a good idea.
Does any other member have any help for this distraught Mum please?
Please stay in touch with us and best wishes,
It makes me so angry to hear that she's having trouble getting access to the care she needs. I'm so sorry you're going through this. Is she at least on this waiting list? You never know if a cancelation could come up and she could see a doctor sooner.
What about an emergency (mental health) hotline? In the US we call 911 for all emergencies which would include a person acting violently, aggressively, or hearing voices.
Also, is bringing her to the emergency room an option? This certainly feels like an emergency to me. I feel her life is in danger. Using that avenue might speed up access to the care she needs. This sounds like a desperate situation. Don't lose hope and don't stop seeking treatment. Somebody must eventually help you. I'm praying you will have peace in the midst of this.
