Many individuals suffer needlessly, delaying or declining treatment for mental health disorders
. A good portion of them know that they could benefit from treatment, but have fears or time constraints that prevent them from attending sessions at a treatment center. Telemedicine
may be the solution that will bring them freedom.
We all know that mental health disorders range from mild to severe cases, and all of the sufferers benefit from some form of treatment. A grieving person may just need someone to help process feelings of loss in a few sessions, and another who suffers from social phobias can be treated with therapy or medication. But the former may have high job demands that limit time to visit a treatment center, and the latter might not be able to leave the house out of fear. These are only two examples that prevent those in need of treatment from getting it.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Office of Applied Sciences reported on unmet mental health treatment needs within its 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. About 10.6 million adults reported unmet needs for treatment. A little over 30% of them expressed concerns labeled “Did not have time”, “Concerned about confidentiality”, and “Might cause neighbors/community to have negative opinion”. All of these relate directly or indirectly with travel to a treatment center on a regular basis.

Those with little time can simply log in to a session from their home or office. Family, friends, and neighbors will not ask questions about the sudden evening trips, and the chance of being seen at a treatment center is almost eliminated.
