"Right now is a difficult time for healthcare in our country. People are confused. Many people either do not have coverage, or their coverage does not include mental health services. This is a unacceptable." Richelle Futch, LICSWA from Washington State founded Mental Healthy Living to make support accessible to everyone.

"I obviously can't afford to provide services at no charge. Yet, recently I have clients who needed to drop out of therapy because they lost their jobs. That has impacted me at a basic human level and I wanted to find a solution that respected not only the therapeutic relationship, but also supported them as an individual in a difficult circumstance. I charge a basic rate, and open up so many hours per week for clients who pay what they can afford. There has to be some exchange for service for the integrity of the service. This has allowed those clients to continue services. What I have found, is that at times when they can, they have paid significantly more than my per hour charge."

When asked what are the requirements or supporting documentation needed for her pay what you can afford services, Richelle added, "I'm asking people I've never met to disclose the most personal aspects of their lives. I must model that same trust. I take them at their word. I've found that if I set expectations in relationships people will most often honor them."
