How can I get treatment in Florida for my depression? I am unemployed and have no insurance. Things are getting very bad.

If you don't qualify for unemployment, you can try applying for S.S.I. (at your local social security office) and /or the Department of Social and Health services ... even if you can't get help from these agencies, alot of time they have resources and can point you in the right direction. Also, you can check around for clinic's that work on a 'sliding scale,' you pay according to your income. Try googling these clinic's online, in your city and neighboring ones as well. If that doesn't work out then you can always call around to some doctors offices - they would probably know of sliding scale clinic's and could point you in the right direction. I am sorry for your troubles ... I truly hope that you will find the help that you need! Take care ...
