I really like him but I know that he knows that he needs psychological help and theropy but I want to push him to go but he's stubborn! How can I encourage him to go get help to improve the relationship?

    Who's crazier? You or him? You are dating a person who knows he needs psychological help....You sound like your insecure and you have a fear of being alone...Im sure the help he needs results from him treating you like crap...you should really evaluate the person you are dating

    If he knows he needs one, there is only one thing keeping him from going. It's too much money, and the results aren't guaranteed. If this is a psychiatrist who can perscribe drugs, maybe, but talk therapy really doesn't do much.

    One of my problems is a poor short term memory. Going to a psychologist didn't help me at all. I forgot everything we talked about in therapy. All it did was remind me that I was crazy, a worthless guy who would never be happy because he had to talk to a shrink.

    A person has to ACCEPT that they need help before they will go GET it. He is in denial, and until that changes, it will be no dice. He will NOT go.

    You say he KNOWS he needs help, but obviously he does not accept the fact. The bottom line is, he is living in a delusional world, he thinks he will solve his problems some OTHER way.

    Guess what, it's not going to change until he ACCEPTS the fact.

    PERHAPS you can explain this to him. Maybe he thinks it's embarrassing to get help.

    In fact, it shows STRENGTH OF CHARACTER to KNOW when you NEED help, and actually do something about GETTING it.

    Try playing the card called 'stroking his EGO'. Sometimes it works.

    first of all...maybe u should stop calling him psycho...? lol cuz that could be makeing w/e problem he may actaully have come across as a joke, or a way that u can pick out his flaws. maybe u could try bringing the shrink to him? pick one thats not scary or intimadateing...someone who seems to be cool, that can be more of a friend to talk to then a shrink pounding him for details on his childhood. tell me if i helped at all. good luck

    You can't make a stubborn person get help if they don't want to. You might have to give him an ultimatum - you or help - even though ultimatums usually are bad for the relationship.

    If the relationship is going to continue to grow for both of you he needs to get help. Tell him you are concerned and this is what he needs to do if he wants this relationship to continue. He will not get better himself. For your sake, don't get further involved until he gets help. Take care of yourself too.

    If he doesn't want help, he isn't going to get it.

    Tell him either he gets it or you're leaving, and stick to that ultimatum.

    If he's that psycho, then you can do better anyway.
