I wish it was free, but like all healthcare here you have to pay. It's kind of a convoluted system and I'm not sure what to think of the new healthcare plan that will be starting in 2014. We'll see I guess.
This surprises me.
In the UK, not only is mental health care free, but the government pays a shitload for you. And caters for the situation you need. If it be living in a mental health unit/supported lodgings (which is the area i work) or on your own with care staff.
