- Are you interested in counseling, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment?
- Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep counseling appointments?
- Do you lack health insurance, or does your health insurance fail to fully cover your mental health needs?
Telehealth (or Telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth counseling allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smartphone or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing mental health professionals to interact with clients through a convenient video call.
Using your smartphone, you receive a remote therapy or counseling appointment with a licensed mental health counselor to receive ongoing care when your primary care mental health professional is unavailable.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled, or live in a remote area, Telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
In the United States, approximately 80 million people have inadequate health insurance or no health insurance at all. Telehealth can be more affordable for clients paying out of pocket.
If this sounds like you.. then Telehealth services may be just what you need.
