I'm looking for advice to find resources that can help my wife. She has, for as long as she can remember since high school, battled depression and anxiety. She is typically able to cope, but she recently experienced a traumatic event, which has caused the depression and anxiety to become amplified.
She had started seeing a therapist in one-to-one appointments before the traumatic event. As her symptoms have increased over the past two weeks, her therapist suggested that we get some additional help (she suggested an Intensive Outpatient Program).
I reached out to our health insurance company and received a list of approximately 30 locations that might offer those services. I've called all of those locations and either spoke to their admissions services or left messages on their answering machines. We need an evening program, since she needs to continue with her job. She feels like she can't take the leave that would be required to attend a 3-5 day a week program during the morning or afternoon.
Out of all of the programs I called, only a handful offer an evening program. We found one that seemed promising, she did the initial evaluation, and the facility will only offer a partial hospitalization, which would require her to attend in-person for 5 days a week from 9am-2pm. Their concern is that she's had passive thoughts of dying (along the lines of wishing she was dead or that she did not exist, NOT actively seeking to die). This was extremely disappointing, as we're trying to get her that additional help ASAP.
Can anyone recommend any other options or resources? I desperately want to help her, but she NEEDS the help to be in the evenings. She feels that any sort of program that requires her to take weeks off from work jeopardizes her career, and it's only making her anxiety and depression worse as we're only finding resources that would require that.
