You have probably heard about telehealth, but have you heard about telemental health?
All of us need someone to talk to from time to time, and it is easier and more convenient to do so in the comfort of your own home.
What is Telemental Health?
Simply put, telemental health is online therapy.
This is when a certified counselor or therapist is able to provide counseling sessions through the use of a telehealth practice management software.
What are the Benefits of Telemental Health?
Telemental health is not only affordable, it is safe and secure.
With telemental health, you are able to receive therapy in the privacy of your own home. Many people tend to open up more in a more comfortable setting like their home.
Sessions are more efficient but are still effective. There is no time wasted lollygagging in the lobby. Appointments are timely and always use a secure platform that is HIPPA approved.
Therapy offers the right tools to help you through difficult times and while being able to do so at home, many people feel more compelled to attend therapy sessions, such as weary men wanting to improve their mental health.
