Link – Teladoc finds mental health visits popular among young men

posted in: Links | 0

Whatever you may think about online or telephone-based therapy, if it gets more guys to actually talk to someone about their mental health, I’m encouraged by it.

“Stereotypes about men not talking about their emotions and phrases like “man up” add even more stigma than what already surrounds mental health. Young men busy with their careers may not think they have time to see someone. Telehealth is emerging as an attractive solution to overcome these problems.

Virtual visits allow people to connect with therapists and psychiatrists through video chats, phone calls and texts. One telehealth provider, Teladoc, said nearly half its behavioral health visits so far this year have been with men between the ages of 20 and 35.”
