Does your insurance have an assistance phone number? Ours has a great program that will tell you who participates with your insurance and tells you something about them.  Their information is kept very current.  When I was looking for family counseling they were extremely helpful.  Also, I would just get on all the waiting lists- chances are they will have an opening and call you sooner.  That happened with two appointments I had to make recently- they told me it would be apx 3 month wait, but then they called me and had a cancellation for a week later.

 I was actually talking about this to my fiance the other day. It is an epidemic that we don’t have more access to mental health services. People wonder why everyone is so messed up ! I can get any perscription I want covered but my insurance only covers $600 a year for therapy. I checked around that is equal to 3 sessions! pitiful

There is practically no free/ low cost services that you can use on a regualr basis it’s kind of a one time deal. If I went to therapy once a week for an hour that would be almost 5,000 a year who can afford that? If we had access to therapists like we do prescription drugs everyone would be much better off. There would be less divorce, less broken families, less suicide, less drug addictions the list is endless.

Sad that people have to get to their breaking point before anyone pays attention even someone attempting to kill themselves is only held in a hospital for 72 hours.
