Hello :welcome:Wayne

I am not sure if the psychiatrist have told the police, it depends on what you said you had done, was it a serious crime?If you have been a danger to yourself or others she might have to tell them by law.
Not sure what to say, or if they have to report anything that is an act of breaking the law.You haven't killed or injured anybody right?Cos I think she will tell if anything like that.Have you stolen or dealt drugs, cos that might be something she would tell on too.Don't think robbing or stealing is something she would tell she'd need proof anyway.Not sure at all to be honest.Try not to worry or if you can't stop worrying you might as well ring her and ask her if she is likely to report you, then at least you will know, one way or the other and not be on edge waiting for the police to pounce at any time.
Anyway welcome again to the forum.Others will probably come along later that may have more idea than me about whether the psyche doc will dob you in.You will find kind, supportive and understanding people here if you want to talk about your illness too and what you are going through.NicolaX

Hi Wayne,

I think it would be best if you asked her. I used to work in MH (not as a professsional) and we would always explain to people what we could and could not keep confidential.

My understanding is that they have to report things like murder or child abuse but apart from that I don't think so. But I am not sure how it works it would be better to find out rather than worry.

Maybe other people on here will have experience of this and be able to help.

I did some illegal things years ago and was seeing a psychologist at the time, he knew but did not report me. But it was not any thing involving harm to others.

I dunno, if you said something like that cos you were unwell at the time, or because something happened that you held yourself responsible for and weren't, then maybe that is why she didn't report you.

If you actually killed your wife, unless you were already in a secure unit for it, I would think she would report you.

but dont quote me as I'm not a legal expert.

Oh Wayne I am so sorry :hug1: That must have been terrible for you but it is not your fault! I understand feeling guilty about things, when my dad died from a stroke I was under the MH team and he was stressed out about having to come down to my reviews and so on, I went around saying I killed him....but reality is he had high blood pressure he refused meds for and undiagnosed diabetes and was overweight...so it wasn't me.

What I am saying is that you cannot blame yourself for your wife's passing, I think they have actually shown stress is not responsible anyway, there are other factors and sometimes it is just rotten luck.

I am so sorry for your loss. Have you had any help to come to terms with this? xx
