    Thank you for your question and welcome to ADHDCentral.com.


    I am sorry you are having such a difficult time right now. I know it is hard to not have medical insurance when your children need medical care. There are a number of places you can go for help.


    Most pharmaceutical companies have programs to help those who cannot afford medication or do not have prescription insurance. You can apply for assistance through the The Partnership for Prescription Assistance, which provides information on hundreds of prescription assistance programs. For more information see: Free or Low Cost Medication


    I also compiled a number of resources for mental health care and posted it on AnxietyConnection.com: Mental Health Resources When You Don't Have Health Insurance


    I hope this information helps. Please post again and let me know how you made out.
