Is This As Helpful As Coming Into RPS For Therapy?
Research “strongly suggests that using telehealth for psychotherapy and other mental services improves patient satisfaction and reduces the costs of care.”
Telehealth is an effective way to monitor the mental health of patients, adjust medications, and conduct cognitive behavioral therapy. Video visits can be effective for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, as well as for couples and family counseling. The approach is also used for addiction counseling, grief therapy, and anger management among many other diagnoses.
