Telehealth visits, which are sometimes referred to as telepsychiatry or virtual therapy visits, are booming as COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, spreads across the country. These visits are a boon to individuals coping with mental illnesses like depression, anxiety and substance use disorders and to those who might need professional care as their anxiety increases.

 

Benefits

There are a number of benefits to pursuing therapy via telehealth:

  • Convenient. You can participate in your visit from any location - your home, office, car, a park or wherever you can create a private space for yourself.
  • Saves time. No more rushing to get to your appointment or dealing with traffic. Plus, you'll save gas!
  • Private. With telehealth visits, you'll never have to worry about running into someone you know in a waiting room.
  • Easy to use. The technology can be used easily by anyone with a computer, tablet or phone.
  • Stay well. Get the care you need while "flattening the curve."
