Affordable and Free Medications
Patient Assistance Program is the web's most current and comprehensive directory of patient assistance programs that exist today. It will help you access drug programs at no cost if you qualify. It also will give you the varying prices that pharmacies charge for a particular medication. Until recently, I have benefited by getting Serequel (which is a very expensive medication) at no cost for about five years.
The link for this program is http://www.rxassist.org
How would you like to read a book that helps you understand mental illness and the Christian?
This is the best Christian perspective on depression I have read. A young American Baptist is about to start his first pastorate when he is incapacitated by a severe clinical depression. The story is told by the man himself and also his wife. She in turn suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder and Post-traumatic Stress. The author shows how C. H. Spurgeon suffered from all three and yet he was a great servant of God. The question is asked, does a mental affliction disbar a man from pastoral ministry? The not unusual experience related here is of some lack of understanding and sympathy from Christians who deny the reality of mental illness or attribute it all to the demonic."
