What Are Telehealth Services?

It’s no secret that being a teenager is tough. Unfortunately, these years can also be when mental health problems first arise. If your teenager is struggling with their mental health, you might be wondering what kind of professional help is available to them. Recently, the availability of telehealth services has significantly expanded, providing support and structure from the comfort of home.

That’s why we strive to provide high-quality services in our centers, our Ohio communities, and through secure virtual platforms. We are committed to helping adolescents and teens between 11-17 understand their mental health conditions and learn healthy coping mechanisms to overcome them.

What Are Telehealth Services?

Telehealth services use technology to provide healthcare remotely. This could involve anything from live-streaming appointments to using pre-recorded videos to deliver therapy sessions. Telehealth allows healthcare professionals to reach patients who might not be able to access traditional in-person services.

The Different Virtual Therapy Options

Depending on your teenager’s needs, a few different types of virtual therapy might be appropriate. These include:

  • Video conferencing – This is a live appointment with a therapist conducted over a video call.
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – This type of therapy focuses on changing negative thought patterns to improve mood and behavior.
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) – This therapy uses bilateral stimulation (usually via eye movements) to help the brain process and heal from trauma.
  • Psychodynamic therapy – This type of long-term therapy explores the relationship between the unconscious mind and current behavior.
  • Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) – This short-term therapy focuses on identifying and achieving specific goals.

A good telehealth provider will offer a range of services so that you can find the right fit for your teenager.

Benefits of Telehealth Therapy for Teens

Telehealth services have many benefits for teenagers struggling with mental health. These include:

  • Increased accessibility – Telehealth services remove geographical barriers so that anyone can access the help they need, no matter where they live.
  • Improved engagement – Some teenagers may feel more comfortable talking to a therapist virtually than in person. This can lead to improved engagement with the therapeutic process, which can lead to better outcomes.
  • Greater flexibility – Appointments can be scheduled at times that work around school and extracurricular commitments. You can also choose from a range of appointment types to find what works best for your teen and family.

What to Expect from Virtual Therapy Services

When you first contact a telehealth provider, you will usually have an initial consultation over the phone or via video call. This consultation will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you have about the service and give the provider some information about your teenager’s history and current symptoms. The provider will then match you with a therapist who they think will be the best fit for your teenager’s needs. Once you’ve made an appointment, all you need is a quiet room with a good internet connection—the therapist will take care of the rest.
