Understanding the Benefits of Virtual Therapy

In today’s world, the use of virtual or  telemental health therapy sessions is becoming the norm. As technology advances, the ability to connect with a mental health professional from the comfort of your own home has become a popular option. The convenience and ease of use of these virtual therapy sessions can be incredibly beneficial for both clients and medical professionals alike. 

Mental healthcare is an increasingly important issue, with about 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health issue each year. Mental health is an essential part of overall health, yet it remains a subject of stigma and shame that often leads to isolation, depression and anxiety. Telemental health has revolutionized mental health care by providing access to services outside of traditional office visits. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of telemental health and how you can make it work for you. 

Privacy and Safety

Telemental health, or telehealth, is the use of digital technologies to provide mental health services to individuals, families and communities.  With the use of technology, telemental health provides therapists and patients with a way to connect without the need for physical contact.  In recent years with the unprecedented changes brought on by a global pandemic, it has become increasingly popular as a way to treat individuals with mental health concerns using various virtual platforms complying with privacy laws and patient safety.  

More Accessible Care

With telemental health becoming more prevalent, mental health professionals are now able to provide better, more accessible care from wherever they are.  Telemental health offers several advantages including increased access to mental health care, improved patient-clinician collaboration, and improved clinical outcomes in general. 

Convenient and Beneficial

There are many benefits to telemental health for individual therapy. Perhaps the most obvious benefit is that it increases access to mental health care. This is especially important for people who live in rural or remote areas, or who have transportation or scheduling limitations.  Telemental health therapy offers many advantages, including convenience, accessibility, and cost savings. 

With telemental health, you can receive help without leaving your home, giving you more control over when and where you access care. It has been used successfully during times of social distancing and beyond, offering an alternative way to provide care to those in need. In addition, mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse can be difficult to manage in traditional therapy settings as often these visits can require a significant amount of time and planning.

Individualized Care

Telemental health also has the potential to improve the quality of care.  Through teletherapy services, mental health professionals can provide personalized treatment plans that use evidence-based techniques and strategies to help individuals reach their recovery goals.  It can help therapists to more easily assess patients’ symptoms, provide feedback, and monitor progress. In addition, telemental health can help to build rapport between therapist and patient, and can facilitate the sharing of important information.
