And they should have a program in your area for mental health to pay for most if not all of the cost.
By the way, is she depressed? Does she have any conditions that effect mood like manic depressive? If she's on meds, is she taking them like she should? She could benefit from going to a psychologist and seeing if she needs treatment too which in turn would help you as well.

I don't think my mom would allow me to go to one, let alone go herself, unfortunately. But my counselor is semi-trained in psychology, and I talk to him when it is really bad. I am a very optomistic person though, so usually a good rant to someone and maybe a little crying session is all takes to lift me back up. She has yet to kill all of my self-worth. It's just that I am "worthless" to her, as she so subtly puts it.
I have no idea what she suffers from, but she has been mentally ill since.. well forever from what I hear. If she gets mad enough, she runs away and claims she tried to kill herself, but never goes through with it. It seems that she does it for attention and sympathy from us cause we used to hug her and apologize and cry when she came back. Now that it became a common thing, we wait it out and don't react or talk about it when she gets back. She has depression medicine, but refuses to take it because she doesn't want to be in "fake happiness."

Getting bad grades sucks. Once I get them, I feel too overwhelmed to start working again. I'm seeing a professional psychologist, and I know talking with her helps me (when I actually focus). I convinced my dad to get counseling too, and he's doing better.
She has been doing this all of my life. I did not understand before, but I clung to my father more and she sees him in me, which makes her mad. She clearly shows her love to my little sister right in front of me. Anyone we meet can tell which daghter is her favorite.
My dad says it's because I didn't want to breastfeed from her as a baby xD
And I mean, I brought them back up to B's at least! I busted my butt the last 2 weeks to try and get at least B's. And it payed off!
