After leaving a long term abusive relationship, I found myself alone, living in a refuge away from family and friends.
I had a major crisis involving intense emotional pain, feelings of abandonment, loss and desperation. Suicidal thoughts were the norm for me, I could not stop crying.
I went to see the local, female Doctor, and she referred me to a mental health nurse. The nurse (male! ) came to see the very same day and instantly relieved me of the most severe feelings I had, including suicide. From then on I met him on a weekly basis, conveniently in the town I then lived, which helped immensely with my anxieties and mental turmoil.
I have since had counseling within the regional mental health services, and have significantly moved away from the state I was then in.
