This past year has been difficult for many. Fear surrounding the virus, increased isolation, the loss of a job, or perhaps a loved one has introduced new stresses for some and heightened existing stresses in others. A t Reliance Integrated Wellness Center, we recognize an increasing need f or mental health services and in these times of social distancing, video counseling. Our counselors and therapists can provide the same expert care as they would in person.
Patients can receive psychiatric evaluations, therapy, patient education, and medication management from wherever they may be. Virtual healthcare services are an excellent option for those who can’t physically leave their home or struggle with the stigma that surrounds going int o a mental healthcare office and have many other benefits, such as:
∙ Reducing the need for trips to the emergency room
∙ Reducing delays in care
∙ Improving continuity of care and follow-up
∙ Reducing the need for time off work, childcare services, etc. to access appointments far away
∙ Reducing potential transportation barriers, such as lack of transportation or the need for long drives
∙ Allows for a caregiver or loved one to join a session easier
