JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Donna asked us where to turn, because she can't get health insurance for someone who's mentally ill.

First Coast News Consumer reporter David Williams called the Florida Council for Community Mental Health.

Vice President John Bryant told us there are places like Blue Cross Blue Shield that provide mental health coverage.

Individuals should also contact the Florida Department of Insurance to see if they have a health care plan registry.

Also, if a person is disabled, they should apply for Medicaid, which Bryant said, has a host of available services.

Help for mental health insurance can be found by visiting the following websites:

Florida Department of Children and Families- Mental Health Services

Florida Council for Community Mental Health

Florida Blue Cross Blue Shield

Mental Health Alliance of Northeast Florida

Mental Health America of Northeast Florida

Behavioral Health Network of Northeast Florida
