Is there such thing as free therapy?

Is there such a thing as free therapy? Yes, this is a serious question lol. Everything online says free but, of course, it ain’t free.

Um, not that I know of. The only thing that comes close that I know is seeing a community or church counselor, but most are not actual psychologists and def not psychiatrists. I guess it depends on what you’re looking for

A very good question. I’m watching

In Canada it’s free!

Moving forward is self referral and it’s free… its covered by other resources esp low income

Yeah. Either your friends and family, or free help lines in your country.
If you’re wanting professional individualized care, though, I highly doubt it.

There are women’s resource centers and churches all across America and beyond. Meditation and prayer are also free.

If you work, ask your job if they have EAP (employee assistance program) with that I believe comes 5-6 free sessions. I use to work for a therapist and we would get a lot of people that would go through that service.

My work has a program that has a person come every 2 weeks and it’s free through them… but I talked to my doctor once when I was in school, they sent to mental health and it was free through them but I needed a doctor referral… ( it was for depression/suicide thoughts)… other then that, churches, hotlines, friends, National Alliance for Mental Illness…

I know in az, if you have state insurance they provide free mental health care, therapy included. So if you have ahcccs the number should be on the back of your insurance card. I’m sure other states probably have the same or similar programs.

Check with your county mental health center

The women’s center near me has a program that costs $20 a visit to see someone who has a Master‘s but is doing their “residency.” Not free, but not $200/hr. either. Check w your women’s center.

If you have insurance, many are supposed to cover mental health on par with physical health. Check your plan.

Not sure if Medicaid covers mental health, but worth checking out, or V.A. benefits if you’re eligible.

Might want to contact a university near you to see if you could be seen by a grad student or even their campus mental health pros for a small fee, or be part of research to get free help.

If you qualify, you can get free treatment in drug or therapy trials—check the Internet.

But if you’re in the U.S., our health care system sucks and we have so many untreated people with mental problems because of this.
