Hi,

Sorry to hear of the situation. There are a couple of organizations that will be able to assist you (and him) to find affordable services in your area. Contact each of the following and request assistance in locating a Dr who can see him ASAP.


You can contact The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services here for assistance with locating federally-funded health centers in your area. These centers can provide services even if you have no health insurance. You pay what you can afford, based on your income. These centers provide health, mental health and substance abuse services. Type in your address and click the 'Find Health Centers' button to find health centers near you.

You can contact the National Alliance on Mental Health here. NAMI are a consumer organization that has a network of local branches that can provide a wealth of information on the kind of services offered locally.


You can contact Mental Health America here. The MHA website contains lots of information regarding mental health issues, treatment options and available resources.


You can contact the United Way here for assistance with finding low-cost mental health services in your local area.


I hope this has been of some help. Please let me know if you have further questions or would like me to clarify any part of my answer.

Dr John B and other Mental Health Specialists are ready to help you
