Sadness maybe what you should be looking for is long term IOP or partial hospitalization they are both out patient and you go to therapy daily or 2-3 times a week. Maybe look for a program that deals with DBT
it always seems impossible until it's done..

Excuse me? Why shame someone about seeking help? You'd be surprised how many people go voluntarily and in my opinion it is very brave. To know you're scared on the outside and take action.

I personally would never go inpatient. Where I live there’s one good hospital in the area. I go to their outpatient practice for therapy and doctors appointment. But they never have any beds open at the hospital and you can be on a waiting list for days. So they just send you to one of two horribly abusive hospitals that always have plenty of beds open. Basically scared straight worked for me and I now refuse to go inpatient.

I think if I became a harm to myself or anyone at my home than I should voluntarily check into the hospital.

Being under the age of 18 it is not my choice anyway to voluntarily check myself into a hospital. It is up to my parents and either my Psychiatrist, Therapist, or Emergency Room Psychiatrist if that is who is evaluating the situation.
