well, i'll approach this from the other side.

when i have been in those situations i basically had lost ALL hope. Everything was useless, no point, and i wasn't worth helping.

so my best advice would be, try you best to offer them hope. that there IS that one person (doctor, therapist, nurse) that can help you and is WAITING to try. ask them to give that person a chance.

to try a T, to try a pdoc, or family physician, and most importantly to give the hospital a try.
if they've done hospital before, tell them "what is it going to hurt to try once more" you can always act later, just give this alternative/person a try.

offer them hope that there ARE medications, treatments that they have not yet tried, and THAT one may be the working one.

********
definately push the outside help. cuz as much as family and friends want to help, it's not always the best. Sometimes we need the stranger telling us that my life is worth while, and maybe that one stranger is the person i can tell a problem to that i couldn't tell family or friends.

best luck M
b2c.
