Debunking common virtual therapy myths and tips for new patients

“While the COVID-19 pandemic exposed and normalized the need for increased mental and behavioral health services over the last year and a half, addressing mental health issues as a regular form of their wellness will persist beyond the pandemic. However, as the adoption of virtual technologies continues to open up more access to care, the potential to successfully meet the rising demand for these services is promising.

Even with the challenges we are still experiencing in the current pandemic, it’s an exciting time for the evolution of mental health care.”
