Si toques fondo lo mejor solución si busques un psiquiatra , pero también antes de entrarte en una puerta no olvides de tocar.

I can't follow either sentence, but in "if conditionals" the present subjunctive (toques/busques) is not used. My attempt would be:
Si tocas fondo la mejor solución es buscar a un psiquiatra, pero....(1st conditional)
Si tocaras fondo la mejor solución sería buscar a un psiquiatra, pero...(2nd conditional)
Si hubiera tocado fondo la mejor solución habría/hubiera sido buscar a un psiquiatra, pero ...(3rd conditional)   qfreed


"lo" mejor is used when it refers to something abstract, a previous statement, clause, phrase, or an unknown noun, etc. (lo mejor (unknown noun) para limpiar un coche...) But when followed by a noun or pronoun, it shows concordance with the noun/pronoun: el mejor coche, la mejor casa, las mejores canciones, los mejores libros....   qfreed


The personal "a" isn't required if the context is look for "any" psychiatrist, not knowing if one exists, but it is often used if it is assumed that one exists...la mejor solución es que consultas a un psiquiatra, pero...   qfreed

Thanks Qfreed.P.  

If you touch bottom the best solution if you look for a psychiatrist, but also before entering a door do not forget to knock.
