There is no lack of people and organizations dilligently operating to separate miserable people from any $ they have. Be very careful out there.
Also the opinion of my parents when I revealed to them that I'd been in therapy on and off for 14 years, and firmly believed it was the only thing that stopped me from killing myself. But they still thought I'd been roped in by some con-man.
So for balance: while con-men exist, so do caring professionals who want to help people through their dark times. And yes, be careful when choosing.
