Most insurance today do cover mental hospital stays. Medicaid covers as long as is needed.. the main problem I’m assuming is that they can’t find thr right medication? Sometimes (not always) shock therapy can help too.. it’s like re-setting the brain.

Do not allow shock therapy (EKG)!

It kills brain cells.

The effectiveness of EKG in treating intractable depression is established. Elderly patients who are on multiple medications for other health problems and for whom another pharmaceutical might be contra indicated due to drug interactions, are sometimes treated for depression with EKG, with good – if temporary – results.

ECT – electroconvulsive therapy. Not EKG.

It’s time to open the discussion to plant medicine/psychedelics. Without getting into a lengthy debate publicly, this is the one modality that i have encountered to be a paradigm shift for those who struggle. All are welcome to reach out to me to discuss.

no don't

don’t do that ever. Don’t ever let a jew do that. They’re dangerous and even more dangerous for people with schizophrenia and anxiety. They also induce psychosis. They have ruined lives.
