This week’s current issue in mental health: the price of medication.
With numerous people sharing stories about how medication was the first step when they were getting help, we wanted to point out how the cost of these treatments is prohibitive especially for people without insurance.
[Edit] As many people have pointed out these are the costs of brand name medications. Always ask your doctor if there is a generic brand available because they are often much cheaper!
I never had to pay full price. The most I paid was less than 20$.
There are ways you can get free or reduced prices and they are available! You just need to look and do a little bit of research but just about everywhere in the US have programs for free or reduced medications.
Don’t be lazy or complacent. Look for them.
