questions I have listed various mental health facilities in both Illinois and
Indiana that you can contact that work on a sliding fee scale. They base their
fees on your income and number of dependants.  You can also contact my
office if you need any assistance or have any questions.  Of course those
with insurance can continue to contact my office for direction or assistance.
