Over the last decade, sizable and important shifts in two aspects of mental health have come to the forefront of discussion: the stigma against counseling and the rise of online counseling services. Both are critical factors in our modern day, whose progression have been instrumental in pushing the overall progression of mental health services all over. The stigma against acknowledging poor mental health and seeking counseling has slowly dissipated, which has led to an increased variety of accessible services, like online counseling. These kinds of offerings are incredible examples of the accessible and affordable mental health services that are becoming more and more mainstream, and for good reason.
At Life Skills Awareness, we are happy to provide online mental health counseling, also known as “teletherapy” to our clients. While teletherapy doesn’t utilize in-person sessions, it can provide the same mental and emotional care that in-person therapy can, in a much more accessible fashion. Teletherapy can involve exchanging messages, phone calls, and video calls with a licensed therapist over your phone, essentially conducting virtual therapy sessions. This is an extremely helpful tool because it provides you with the support and care of a mental health specialist, wherever you are and whenever you can fit it into your schedule, rather than finding a recurring time that you have to set aside every week. Folks who are extremely busy, or live in far away areas, or don’t have access to the proper means of transportation still deserve mental health support and counseling all the same, and online therapy can provide that to them. Ironically, for the aggressive impact that the internet has undoubtedly had on our collective mental health, it can also be a catalyst for increasing mental health awareness, and providing quality mental health services to folks who might not be able to as easily access them.
