When You Can't Pay for Therapy
A staggering 90% of Americans say that the U.S. is experiencing a mental health crisis. And yet, access to care remains terrible, with the largest barrier being inadequate insurance coverage and the cost of health care.

Whether it’s a friend, a loved one, or even yourself, we all know someone who desperately needs help but can’t afford therapy. While we can’t offer a magic bullet — after all, the health care system is a dumpster fire — we have a few ideas for cheap therapy for the insured and uninsured.
