wow, that's a lot to deal with right now! *hugs* I'm sorry that i am not too sure about welfare or disability. I am on student loans right now. Do you live at home? Because i know that one cannot even apply for a government student loan as an independent until they have been out of high school for 4 years. Are you in school right now? Can you apply for a scholarship or something? I really do not know about welfare or anything like that though... maybe i can ask someone for you. I'll let you know if i find anything. In the meantime, counselling can be partially covered through Alberta Blue Cross, but i am not sure about any other insurance. I am not sure which part of Alberta you are in... but i can maybe give you more details through a U2U... please let me know if there is anything you need, kay? I'm here for you.
