Depression and anxiety are two of the greatest mental health challenges facing Americans today. In fact, an estimated one in five adults lives with a mental illness. With the demand for psychiatric care on the rise, it’s imperative that patients have access to convenient and on-demand services.
Unfortunately, increasing wait times for in-office appointments can create a discouraging barrier for those seeking professional care. And, as the stigma surrounding mental illness continues to fade, decreased physician availability only adds to the problem.
In times like these, it’s essential to find ways to extend access to psychiatric care to patients across the U.S.

Helps Reduce Stigma
Telepsychiatry helps reduce the stigma surrounding mental health by providing a safe, secure, and private environment. Some anxiety disorders make it uncomfortable to meet in person. With telepsychiatry, patients and providers are connected virtually allowing for quality care without the nervousness patients might face during in-office appointments.
Good Patient Outcomes + Reduced Costs
Research has shown high satisfaction among patients and providers. Practices and health care facilities are able to provide mental health services to their patients in an affordable and convenient manner that might not otherwise be possible.
Telepsychiatry can also help reduce travel and other costs often associated with in-office care for both patients and providers. It also allows doctors to practice in states where they are licensed but not located. With its growing list of benefits, telepsychiatry is more than just a trend. It’s proven to be a critical integration for facilities and practices across the U.S.
