I don't know about malpractice, but if I understand your story correctly I would have to say that you are receiving some of the most sub-standard care I have ever heard about. Obviously they're just shuffling you from office to office and playing the old phone tag game, maybe hoping you will just give up. WELL, DON'T DO IT! Don't let them get away with this. Do whatever it takes, get in their face, state your case and let them know you mean business if you don't get some help (business as in lawsuit wise). Take someone with you to help you get your point across if you feel you can't be that assertive at that point. I just find it hard to believe these people are treating you this way. My psych. wouldn't even let me leave his office when I was suicidal, I went directly from there to a psych unit. The fact that you even mentioned the word suicidal should have made them jump into action. I live in a small rural town, too, but I've never heard such a horror story as this happening here. You hang in there, do whatever you need to to be safe and don't give up trying to get the help you need. I'm right there with you.
