Are there not groups up in arms making a big row about the pathetic conditions of mh care in the UK. Is London better because it is a big city?? Things are not good for most people here either. I guess I should count my lucky stars that I have two insurances that typically pay for everything However, this is not the case with my T. He is not a preferred provider. In other words, he won't just take what the insurance companies will pay him. He is $245 for 45 minutes, and I see him twice per week. My 2 insurances together pay around 47% of his bill. I have to pay the rest out of pocket. When I run out of my 60 sesssions per year, then I have to pay for probably 90% out of pocket. My T suggested I contact a nother psychologist we both know and pick up some private family court evaluations in Chicago as I could probably make around $4000 for one evaluation. And, that would pay for a couple of months. I am so exhausted right now, I would rather dip into my savings. I also got $20,000 from when my brother died. So, I can use that too. I think he thinks I will need around two to two and one-half years of therapy to work through my "unfinished business." My resistance, however, is getting in the way, and so I should start seeing $$$ when I go to his office. Maybe that would give me the stimulus to get off my darf and get into things.

I am sorry there is no one near by and that a psychiatrist won't even see someone for med's. Again; why aren't people throwing a fit about this? In my state, our Govenor signed a bill last year that raised what insurance companies should pay for mh outpatient treatment. It was 30 sessions per year, and it is now 60. There must be some organization that is fighting for rights of the mentally ill??? no???
