I hear people saying they are not employed but still attend therapy. How do you all afford therapy? I guess some of you may be in other countries. US here. This country sucks. Literally sucks the life out of people. Can crisis lines refer you to affordable therapy? I've heard of sliding scale. But I've also been denied insurance before for going to a therapist in college after my mom died. I don't understand that at all. It discourages people from getting help.
