check out your county mental health center. they charge based on your ability to pay if you don't have insurance. they also will help you get free or low cost meds. welcome to the group.

I would like to add that you can find your local mental health clinic by looking in the blue pages of any phone book

...and to add to that, just a question - are you on disability or are you able to work? ........if you're not on disabilty and are still able to work, there's also Medicaid, that if you qualifly for, could get medical help.

If you don't know where your local Medicaid office is, here's a link where you just click on your State and it will show you where yours is. I would see what they could do to help.
