In brief: It depends

Some people buy insurance policies that do not cover mental health care, thinking they'll never need such care.
Then when they do, they're in difficulty. Sometimes employers do this to save money. You need to review your insurance policy carefully to make sure it covers the areas most significant for you. When a person does not have coverage, there may still be state hospital systems to help.
