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 Health Centers 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.
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.
In light of the current crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we want you to know you are not alone. If you are looking for a therapist, compassionate online help is available. A growing number of people are opting for Telehealth to meet their mental health care needs.
