What Is Mental Health Insurance + How To Get A Free Appointment With A Therapist?
Seriously, WTH are you waiting for?
I’m not here to insult your intelligence, you obviously know the importance of having health insurance, but do you have mental health insurance? I bet you didn’t even know it existed, did you?
Mental health has taken center stage in recent years compared to the past, which is great. More than great, it’s life-saving! There is less and less stigma around the issue, and celebrity stories have helped highlight this! Helping us to understand that we can all go through difficulties with mental health, and that’s ok. However, while it appears that as a society we have made great strides, sadly our health systems have not quite caught up.
Put another way; mental health can be VERY expensive, depending on the country where you live. Even if you are lucky enough to be able to afford good private health insurance, many simply do not go far enough in looking after our mental health properly. Many governments still do not recognize mental illness for what it is: illness, so the public health systems also don’t cover it as they should.
What can you do if your health insurance doesn’t cover mental health? Or even worse: if you don’t have mental health insurance at all?
