You : You have enormous challenges you are facing and it's wonderful that you're allowing yourself to look for support and ask for help. Ucla medical center has a wonderful department of psychiatry and their training clinic will give you good, low cost care. Most clinics connected to academic hospitals base their fees on income. If ucla doesn't work out, i would suggest calling the other hospitals in your area and ask to be connected to the outpatient psychiatry clinic. Finally, you can call 411 and ask the operator if los angeles has a hotline for mental health referrals. Many cities do. Stay focused on health and you'll get through this hard time.

Insurance: Ask your insurance carrier about who is on their panel nearby where you live. If you have no insurance, see if you qualify for either Medicare or Medicaid. Both of those organizations have mental health services and practitioners as part of their services.
