Default I need some help please

Hi Im suffering from multiple psychiatric injuries due to compounded injuries caused me by Orthodox Christian cult religious abuse that is based politics. They organized for me being kidnapped tutored and then they had stressing tools on me to kill myself . Im looking for a supporting anti religious abuse activist who can support me with my wife through out the healing journey which a big part of it is related to confronting them with strength . can anyone suggest something in in Melbourne ? I feel so weak and stil scared of confronting them , I would like them being exposed everywhere and even to the Australian Government for abusing its systems under the name of the region and ethnic minorities rights , please help us if you know someone who doesn't hold any religious agenda who can be of extreme emotional support
thanks

Humaneist, I'm concerned that you might be limiting your options, and thus miss out on help you need.

I personally found a clinical psychologist to be useful, even life-saving.

You can arrange a Mental Health Care Plan via a General Practitioner, and this would entitle you to ten visits per year, bulk-billed.

Hello Humaneist, welcome to the forum. I see you believe in a god, despite your experience with your religious organization. I suggest you spend some time checking the lack of evidence for such a thing. There are a lot of useful threads on this site.
Good luck with your recovery.

Humaneist, if you feel things are really seriously wrong, please concentrate on help for yourself: that is most important thing of all.

Lifeline - 13 11 14 - will connect you to somebody who will speak one-on-one without judging.

Hi humaneist, I hope you're ok this morning and welcome to the forum. As mr black said above, a good course of action is to do some research on the internet and find a suitable clinical psychologist in your area that bulk bills, maybe give them a call and make an appointment. Then make an appointment with a local gp. Tell him or her you need a referral to the psychologist. This will give you 10 free (bulk billed) sessions.

It may sound like a lot to do but it could be very beneficial, it costs nothing and if you don't like it or it doesn't help you don't have to go again, or you can find a different therapist.
