Dear Nate,
To be honest I'm not entirely sure how you check up on doctors. In the UK there is a regulating body - the General Medical Health Council. All Doctors should have 2 things: certificates and liability insurance. Both of these should be on display in their office / surgery. I suppose you hould be able to check on their degree by writing to the examination board or college that gave them their degree.
As I said before, the most helpful people are mental health charities, they have "us", (people who suffer or survive mental ill health) in mind. I know of two on-line in the UK: Mind and Depression Alliance (www.depressionalliance.org) there is also a page somewhere with a list of mental health charities, I have it bookmarked, but I'm having difficulty fathoming it. I'll try again.(http://www.askjeeves.co.uk/main/metaAnswer.asp?MetaEngine=DirectHit&origin=0&MetaURL=http%3A%2F%2Fbubl%2Eac%2Euk%2Fuk%2Fcharities%2Fmen%2Ehtm&qCategory=GOV_&metaTopic=BUBL+UK%3A+UK+Registered+Charities%3A+Mental+Health&ItemOrdinal=2&logQID=E3D4796DCE98D41)
If that makes any sense I wish you luck! Basically, I found it by searching www.askjeeves.co.uk with the question "where can I find a registered charity for mental health?" It is just a page of names, numbers and links, but it's useful.
Feel free to e-mail me if you want.
Again, I wish you and your wife all the best
Richeldis
