Hi Anon, I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. I can't imagine losing a child and then having the feeling that it was your fault. That would put me in a very dark hole that I don't know if I'd be able to get out of either.
Here is a link to another thread that talks about free/low-cost care:

I hope you can find something there that will get you the help you need.
I would also call one of the numbers on the Crisis Resources page, they might also be able to point you to some good help too.
I hope you can find the help you need.
