I worry less about the availablity and more about the quality of mental health care on the gov't dime.

At least where I am in the US, I can get services on medicaid fairly easily but it's typically providers just out of school that will take state insurance.

The new trend in all areas of health care seems to be the good providers are less likely to take insurance and more likely to take direct payment from the 1 percent.

For people such as myself with complicated Dx's, the proper care is out of reach. I was told I needed to be admitted to Austin Riggs to really help my attachment and personality disorders, plus complex PTSD, but that I would never be able to afford it. Rich families send their problem kids there. And there are enough rich families these days to attract the top performers.

I need to come off my meds completely and be in intensive therapy which for a self-employed person, would bankrupt me.

Now that I have citizenship papers, I am hoping that moving to Canada would allow me to finally address my issues without landing on the streets.

I feel a little like a carpetbagger taking this approach but I've been committing slow suicide for years and I need a way out.

Not to mention grad school would be affordable and when my head is screwed back on to some degree I can get a new profession as mine is worsening my condition.

Cheers
