I tried to kill myself less than a week ago but obviously failed. No one found out and I haven't told anyone but I feel like I've hit rock bottom and I need to talk about this. I can't seek therapy because I have no money but I can pay for one session, which is all I need right now. My question is: will that psych tell my family or put me in a mental hospital against my will? The last thing I need right now is for people to find out I can't even do that right.
Hope GAG doesn't delete this. I'm just asking what will happen with the psych, not about the attempt.

Everything you say is private. If the psych really believes you are a danger to yourself or others, they might be able to commit you with a judge's order. In that case, the judge and possibly some kind of court clerk would be the only ones to know, and they will keep it private also.
I really can't see that happening in your case. Psychs and judges really avoid doing that as much as possible.1
