    Hi @Hiyalove - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. I'm sorry to read about the problems your daughter is facing.
    I don't know if you've seen it, but here's a useful resource on PoTS: https://www.potsuk.org/
    I know a little about PoTS as it's often found in those that have my genetic disorder. There is an Autonomic Unit at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London which sees patients from 18 years old, which might be of interest later.
    There's also this website, which has a section on PoTS. See: http://www.heartrhythmalliance.org/stars/uk/postural-tachycardia-syndrome-pots  Dr. Blair Grubb who has a short video on there is a great PoTS expert. Some time ago I was in touch with 2 of his USA patients who held him in enormous respect.
    I'll ask my friend @thespiceman to share his resources on mental health which may also help you.
    If you have any questions, please do say, & I look forward to chatting with you any time.
    Sorry, it takes me a long time to type, & I see the spiceman had already replied!
