Telehealth & Teletherapy Benefits
One of the most popular forms of telehealth in the mental health field is online therapy through a secure video conferencing platform, although some therapists may also offer phone or text therapy. Online therapy has also been called teletherapy, distance counseling, telemental health, and internet therapy.
Telehealth, Telepsychiatry & teletherapy provides the patient with benefits that may lead to better care. We understand it can be difficult to take time off from your busy schedule to come to our office. This form of treatment can eliminate your commute time and lead to less stress, especially when you are scheduled to see your psychiatrist/therapist often.

About Telehealth & Teletherapy
We know that it can be hard to fit appointments into your daily life. Leaving home when you are managing mental health symptoms, or even just finding time to commute regularly to an in-person appointment can be difficult. Telehealth is the ability to provide mental health care services from a distance through technology. A counselor or therapist may be able to provide psychological counseling, treatments and support over the internet through video conferencing, online chat, or a phone call.
Morgan Mental Health Care uses an online scheduling and electronic health record (EHR) system called TherapyPortal. This provides a HIPPA compliant Patient Portal, allowing you to see openings and schedule online. With the Patient Portal you may join telehealth sessions, manage appointments, receive appointment reminders, receive documents, and conveniently complete paperwork securely online.
