Start w/ Regular Dr.: You're making a good move to get help for your concerns. It's perfectly fine to ask your regular physician about your mental health concerns. He or she can assist you in getting answers to your questions or setting up an appointment with a psychiatrist or psychologist. There is help available. Just keep asking and sharing the problem with others until you get the help you want.
