How do I know if the clinic takes my insurance?

What if I don’t have insurance? Can my child still come to the clinic?
Prospective patients may pay the private pay rate, or if that is not feasible, Genesee County Community Mental Health provides services on a sliding scale basis.
I think my child needs therapy but what if I don’t know who he/she should see?
