    How do access high quality mental health services and advice, while saving big-money in the process?

    What strategies can you suggest for saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars and still getting the best available counseling and advice?

    Hello:

        My best advice to you, is try to find a local mental health chapter in your community or area. They can be googled or found in the yellow pages under mental health. They all have different names, depending on what state or area you reside in. They are run very much like 12 step programs. For example like those that assists people with alcohol addictions. The mental health meetings are usually held two times a month. And meet at a local hospital or similar facility. They are run by a thought leader who is trained in the area of psychiatry and psychology. There are others who attend these meetings with the same or similar problems that you may have. And you share and interact accordingly with them and, with the intervention of the leader of the group. They only require a fee of about five to ten dollars to attend, and will certainly save you a whole lot when it comes to expenses. Half of the time, when you do go to seek help from a so called qualified psychiatrist. He or she, may listen to you for about twenty minutes. And based upon what they are getting in terms of feedback from you, recommend that you take a prescription home for bipolar disorder. I think that this is virtually ridiculous based on only one visit. Which not to mention costs on top of the $$200.00 office visit, another $100.00 or more for the medication. Usually the doctor will first give you samples to try first, if they have them on hand? This can really add up to a lot of money and  to add, many psychiatrists like chiropractors do not accept too many different insurance plans, if you do have health coverage. Try the self help groups first, that is my best advice for you.

    I go to a community mental health clinic for my Bipolar Disorder. I see a psychiatrist, get counseling, attend group therapy and receive emergency services all in the same place on a sliding fee scale, which for me is 3 dollars. My doctor is wonderful and I get the best of care, and all my mental health records all stay in the same place.
