Helping Kids Get the Mental Health Care They Need
The last decade has seen a drastic increase in mental health disorders in children and teens. At the same time, the U.S. is facing a critical shortage of mental health providers.
Wait lists to see a therapist can be weeks or months long. Poor access to care can have dire outcomes; the CDC reports that suicide ranks among the top three primary causes of death among adolescents 12-17 and in college-aged youth.
Researchers believe social media, cultural pressures, dependence on electronic communication, and poor sleep habits all contribute to mental health issues in children and teens. The solution requires a modern and convenient approach that kids can relate to – without any negative stigma.
Improving Access to Care
HOW IT WORKS
Simple, Painless and Discreet
When a child suffers, the entire family suffers – at home, school, the workplace and throughout day-to-day life. Teletherapy combats access and stigma issues without sacrificing quality counseling and care.
