  • Can you get anyone to help you? I think that your employer HAS to cover you and can't turn you down due to mental health issues but I'm not positive. What about giving a lawyer a call? Maybe a disability lawyer? And ask his or her secretary that question. Also, I believe most counties have a program for the poor for mental health. In mine it's called Directions. They have medications as well as counseling and possibly doctors. Call your county health department and ask. I wish and hope for the best for you.

  • Thank you I have tried a lawyer no one will take my Case I have no luck with anything I try

  • OK, have you checked with the county health dept. about a program for adults mental health help when they can't afford private doctors?

    When you say "I tried a lawyer" does that literally mean you tried 1 lawyer? Because all lawyers aren't "1 lawyer" and the county or other charities may know about a lawyer that does help people like you and others who can't pay top dollar. One time I needed a lawyer to fight for my disability and all I needed in the end was for him to write 1 letter and my disability refusal was reversed and the fight was over for $125.00. That's not so expensive for a monthly check of over $1,000.00.

    I hired him knowing I probably couldn't pay him for long, but I gave it a try to see how expensive it would amount to and it worked out just fine! I wouldn't have been able to keep going and keep paying him plenty of money. Thank goodness I did let him try!! So hang in there and just do your best.

  • Thanks I tried 5 lawyers they all said no. Its like no one wants to help me all they want is money and I have none I don't even have enough to pay the bills.

  • I'm sorry that has happened. It seems strange that 5 lawyers turned you down. I have no idea what's going on here.
