Folks struggling with mental health issues – October 5, 2017

Many poor local Summerville residents are struggling with mental health issues that require specific medications.  Mostly being uninsured, the patients will be seen by doctors at hospitals where they were given prescriptions upon discharge that they cannot afford.  Often they wind up in the Emergency Room as a result of not having medications.  These folks need assistance for medications to avoid recurrence of emotional episodes.  Change for a Dollar was asked to assist a couple of folks with their mental health medication.  Change for a Dollar has a relationship with a local pharmacy where they offer a discount on medications and Change for a Dollar pays for those prescriptions.

Prescriptions for patients- $100
