Help Ian Rafalko get mental health treatment

Hey everyone.

For background I was born into Scientology and was in it for 24 years. After very publicly leaving I never could have imagined the problems adjusting I would have. I’ve been broken down by the cult and my parents using the cults methods, in ways that has greatly debilitated me.
To the point working, talking and even living without a very severe depression is impossible currently. The PTSD, extreme anxiety, depression and OCD has taken its toll and I need help from a professional clinician.
Scientology has a way of reducing the ability of its members to ask for help and to seek any  evidence-based treatment, so that is more so the reason this is only happening now. I plan on meeting with a specialist ASAP but I have been just barely surviving and I am ready to ask for help.
 All funds will go to mental health services and medication if needed. Abuse treatment can be very expensive so the number is based off of a long term fund to get my head right with professionals.

Thank you for your support thus far in my journey. Weather you contribute or not I appreciate you.
