I have suffered from depression for more than 10 years. It was good/okay/not so bad for some years but for a few weeks I have had that same old feeling again. Where in PP can I go to "talk to someone" and not be confronted with something like "Oh man you cut yourself like the crazy people at ... clinic" or "Oh Andrea come on, why would you be depressed? You can talk to me.." and I know I cannot. Or "Why would you want to die? Come on, what's your problem?" (had to listen to that from family and friends)
And does anyone know about the cost of this kind of consultation?

I personlly know of one girl who was 5/7 years old during the KR years. I always put her bargirl tantrums down to the fact that she had to look after her younger brother and baby sister while her mother worked as slave labour

It doesn't solve the underlying issue, and can make you worse in the long run.
By all means, talk with a person who understands. The environment you live in is often a dampener. Consider a change. If possible, live closer to nature.

I have spent the last 4 years volunteering in psychiatric projects in China and Ethiopia. Though I am going to be returning to the US, and this is a short trip (21 days), I wanted to become more involved in mental health in Cambodia. There is certainly the idea that there is a crisis in mental health in Cambodia, given Cambodia's recent history. I would love to hear about this from the people who actually are here experiencing the actual life here, as opposed to reading journals on the subject.

Actually I appreciate lady diamond's offer. For me it does not substitute as therapy but I feel that when I eat healthy, do sports etc. I do feel better.

And actually I also came back to Cambodia because I was happier here. Because the people are much warmer than say in Germany.. That is just a fact! I have to say that about my own country. When I went back last year for a few months I was not happy there. People were complaining all the time, my family expects me to live the life they want, the people, the neighbors, many do not care about each other. Of course, Khmer people have their bad sides, too. But for me they are much warmer and more hospitable than Germans. So, yes I will go back to Germany for a while to get myself sorted (education, psychotherapy) but then I plan on coming back here. But, I generally agree with you. I have heard a lot about people getting f***ed up in Cambodia. Drugs, alcohol and so on.
