Hey, everyone, My MC has found himself in a mess since he ran away from home. He has lost many benefits including health insurance, which will undoubtedly make it more difficult to treat his mental health issues and allow for a sense of self-improvement, which I feel is necessary for character development by the end of the book. When his parents get into an accident and die, my character, who is 17 at the time, does not want to go through the foster care system/whatever would follow minors without parents, so he runs away to live on the streets. By the time he is around 19, things happen, which include sharing a house with multiple people and working a job in a restaurant that pays "under-the-table" (since he doesn't have the essentials like his SSN). At the same time, he can't rely on having enough money to provide for health concerns. At the end of the novel, I planned on having him check himself into a psychiatric hospital, but without insurance, what can he really do for himself? If he tries to reach out to social services (?) and admits that he had run away from home and what his dead parents left behind would be really helpful right around now, can things be arranged for him? And if not, are there any other solid alternatives that demonstrate maturity and self-love on his end?
