Our 10-year-old son has been diagnosed with severe depression. He is suicidal, violent, hates himself, and has stopped going to school and engaging with the outside world.
He is a sweet, wonderful, smart, kind, and happy boy on the inside, but this mental illness has overtaken him, and it breaks our hearts.
We were recommended to enroll him in a local facility that treats children in his situation, but it is extremely expensive and we would struggle to afford it. They suggested it would be 3-6 months, and costs between 4,000~5,000 dollars per month.
Any amount to help us cover these costs would be much appreciated!
