    You start with your family doctor. He will prescribe you an anti depressant if he thinks it's uncomplicated (without personality disorder or several illnesses combined)he will also recommend therapy. If its complicated he will refer you to a Psychiatrist who is trained in mental illness.

    ER is for life threatening emergencies.  go see your doctor first.  depending on your health insurance, your doctor may recommend a therapist as well.  be honest with your doctor.  if it's hard to say it, write it down first and show it.  they can't help you if you don't tell them what you think might be wrong.  bring a close friend for moral support if you need it.

    good luck.

    Start with a regular doctors appointment, unless you feel that you may cause harm to yourself or others then go to the emergency room
