Where to go for free counseling?


Question from L Penner: My health insurance doesn't offer reimbursement for mental health services, but I really need to talk to someone. Where can I go to get free or very inexpensive counseling?
Answers - Rosalind Kleban, L.C.S.W. Many community-based family service agencies offer inexpensive and sliding-scale fee schedules. Also, support groups for cancer patients are often free, and I think that is what I would recommend at this point.

On Wednesday, March 19, 2003, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Overcoming Depression. Rosalind Kleban, M.S.W., Diane S. Thompson, M.D., and Jennifer Griggs, M.D., M.P.H. answered your questions about medication and lifestyle changes that can ease depression along with to put hope, fun, and pleasure back into your life during and after breast cancer treatment.
