To find best treatment for anxiety, depression and other mental health disorders

Hi everyone,
I have recently been focusing on studying mental health issues and what kinds of treatments are helpful. I have been focusing on anxiety disorders but am delving into depression and other mental health issues also. I have come to see that I really need to find effective treatments for my own anxiety, depression and other mental health issues, which can become extreme and feel horrific. For most of the time I have just accepted the idea that I can’t really do much of anything about them. Now I am coming to learn that not only can I find effective means of treatment, but I cannot afford not to. I will be discussing this intention with my therapist and other mental health professionals I work with. I want to eventually be able to help others who suffer from mental health disorders, but I really have to find out what will work for me and get me through some of these horrific attacks of anxiety and depression. In my desire to help others with mental health issues, I have realized that I have not really been treating my own issues, and have made my ability to function in life suffer.
Please pray for me but for all people who suffer from anxiety, depression or any other mental health disorder to find the best form of treatment and the professionals who can best help them effectively apply them.
Thank you for any prayers. God bless you all. Amen.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from

the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal (Writer_for_God). You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by

speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.

You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from

the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into Writer_for_God’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Perhaps it would be beneficial to ask your doctor(s) about Effexor. That’s what I take; it fights depression and anxiety. Just so you know, the medication does not eliminate the depression/anxiety altogether. Rather, it just reduces the severity of the symptoms (there’s a very big difference). It’s like mowing a lawn. Mowing it does not eliminate the grass altogether-- it just reduces the length of it, so that it doesn’t get out of control.

I pray that God heals you of these problems and that He helps you reach out to those who suffer from mental illnesses. Amen.

Prayer of St. Dymphna

Lord, our God, You graciously chose St. Dymphna as
patroness of those afflicted with mental, emotional, and
nervous disorders. She is thus an inspiration and a symbol
of charity to the thousands who ask her intercession.

Please grant, Lord, through the prayers of this pure,
youthful martyr, relief, and consolation to all suffering
such trials – especially @Writer_for_God.

We beg You, Lord, to hear the prayers of St. Dymphna
on our behalf. Grant all those for whom we pray patience
in their sufferings and resignation to Your divine will.

Please fill them with hope, and grant them the relief and
cure they so desire. We ask this through Christ our Lord,
who suffered agony in the garden. Amen.
