EMOTIONAL SAFETY
Your safety is important. Your civil liberties are important. Your mental health and wellness are equally important.
Did you know:  
  • Mental and behavioral health services are essential health benefits covered through the Affordable Care Act. That means access to counseling and psychotherapy and inpatient services if needed.
  • 9 out of 10 uninsured young adults are eligible for financial assistance and could find a suitable health plan for between $50 and $100 per month.
  • You can search for health plan on your phone or tablet, or you can get help in person or by calling The Marketplace directly 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
That means mental health services are essential, affordable and accessible. There are places you can go for help. Making sure you have adequate health coverage should be your first step. Visit healthcare.gov and find a plan.
