Telemental Health/Providers

Telemental Health

Online therapy, also known as telemental health, is a growing field. A therapist or counselor provides psychological counseling and support over the internet through email, video conferencing, online chat, or a phone call.

Telemental health may be useful to individuals who cannot leave their home, who work unconventional hours, as well as those overseas or who live in rural or remote areas.

You may want to research this treatment option to determine if it can be helpful for you. Ask your mental health provider about their experiences or thoughts on telemental health. Medicare, Medicaid, and other third-party reimbursement may be available; also, check with your insurance provider.
