I do think a lot of people are unaware that there is counselling available without referral through a medical doctor. I was not aware of this even though I had seen a psychologist as a teenager. I do believe that a lot of people who are just having situational stress are quickly prescribed something by their medical doctors because it's a quicker fixer upper method for the doctor. Though in my opinion a counsellor, who may spend more time with an individual, may be able to provide more productive help.
