Mental Health Crisis

Canada prides itself on having a one-tiered healthcare system but it is clear to me only those with an overstuffed wallet who can afford ongoing mental health support outside of a hospital such as a psychologist or therapist.
The more I pushed my friends away the worse I began to feel. Ultimately I was a consenting adult and they respected my wishes and backed off. Some of them, though, have backed off forever because my verbal abuse in a time of need was too much for them to handle. It is the biggest regret of my life.
