Telehealth Growing as Mental Health Option

Published: April 21, 2021

Telehealth services reduce staff exposure to sick people as well as reduce overcrowded health facilities. It also allows professionals to deliver much-needed patient care.

The stigma associated with mental health is slowly being erased due to COVID-19, making talking with health professionals more common.

"Some of us are realizing it is okay to ask for that help and it is okay to give that help. We have all joined together as a community to get through something and that is something that has come out of the pandemic," said Amy Monzingo, a Best Care EAP Counselor for Methodist Health System.
