A) Please call or visit your nearest Medicaid Office and apply for benefits for which you qualify. You may qualify for medical benefits so you can see a specialist about your condition, food stamps and cash assistance to help pay your bills.
I would also recommend contacting MHMRA of Harris County at 713-970-7104 to schedule an assessment to see if you possibly need rehabilitative or mental health treatment. You may also qualify for SSI, low income housing and other benefits.
