    I am sorry that you lost your insurance. Hopefully, you will be able to get back on to health insurance.

     

    There is a network of free clinics throughout the U.S. You can check with a clinic in your area, some may have psychologists or physchiatrists on staff. You can also check with your local health department to ask about resources in your area.

     

    Free Clinics

     

    I hope this helps

    The psychiatrist you were seeing is the first one I've heard of that would not take cash.  And I've been seeing them since 1989.

     

    Nowadays, a psychiatrist's primary function is to diagnose and write prescriptions. Perhaps he can refer you to someone who will take cash.

     

    Another option might be to contact a local hospital and find out if they have a mental health outpatient clinic.
