[WESTPORT, 08/09/2021] Due to the pandemic, access to mental health care has only become more necessary. About 4 in 10 adults in the U.S. have reported experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depressive order according to the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF).
Many do not feel it is safe to leave their homes, especially with the recent emergence of more dangerous COVID-19 variants. The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health recognizes this and offers telehealth therapy so that patients can receive care from the comforts of their homes.
What is Telehealth Therapy?
Telehealth therapy is a private video conference between the patient and their therapist. The patient is given access to a HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform, meaning the patient’s medical information is safeguarded.
Patients will need a device with which to enter a video call, like a computer or smartphone, a stable internet connection, and a quiet, secluded space. The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health may advise telehealth therapy for people with anxiety, anger management issues, and depression.
However, patients suffering from symptoms related to more than one disorder or have more than one mental illness may require in-person treatment between online sessions.
Why Telehealth Therapy?
With telehealth therapy, patients do not need to leave the safety of their homes or travel long distances to get treatment. This is especially important during the pandemic. It eliminates potential contact with diseases caused by travel or by staying in the waiting room of a clinic.
The video conferences are also as private as in-person sessions. And since the sessions are done remotely, patients have more flexibility when scheduling them. As long as they have the previously stated requirements for telehealth therapy, they could even have it while traveling.
