Financial Assistance Resources for Medical and Mental Health Services

Community Member

One of the most frequent questions we receive here on MyDepressionConnection is how to pay for medical treatment, therapies, and prescriptions when one lacks insurance or funding. Paying for prescriptions is another area of concern for many of our members, not just here on this site, but on all our HealthCentral health communities. Many of us don't just suffer from one medical or mental health condition. Most of our members have multiple health needs which require financial resources. In response to this great need, I got together with some of my colleagues and friends here on HealthCentral to put together a comprehensive list of financial assistance articles and posts. Here you will find a compilation of articles written by our patient experts on how to find funding for either medical or mental health treatment in addition to prescription assistance specific for each health condition. We hope this information can help in some small way for you to get the medical and/or mental health treatment you need.
