PPS offers telehealth, virtual help at home.
Does the COVID-19 crisis have you at your breaking point? You are not alone. A recent poll conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that tens of millions of people in the U.S. are feeling the mental health effects of COVID-19. “More than four in ten adults overall (45%) feel that worry and stress related to coronavirus has had a negative impact on their mental health, up from 32% in early March.”
With no end in sight, Americans are gripped by fear of the unknown. In these uncertain times, nearly everyone is looking for an outlet. While stress relief is necessary, it’s important to embrace healthy coping skills. Without the proper tools and support, a pandemic event such as COVID-19, could trigger a mental health crisis. Checking in with ourselves throughout each day is one way to detect feelings of overwhelm before they become unbearable.
If you are struggling with finding your mental footing, know that help is here. Although talking to friends and family may be of some benefit, it could also cause damage to loved ones who are experiencing similar emotions. Having an unbiased listening ear who is trained to help others manage during times of crisis is ideal. The best part is, you can receive the treatment you need without leaving the comfort of your home.
Parker Psychiatric Services (PPS) invites you to our virtual clinic, featuring telehealth.
What is telehealth?
Telehealth is a term used to describe the delivery of health related services using telecommunications technology, such as phone or video conferencing. In efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, our licensed mental health professionals are able to use telehealth to provide services virtually, reducing the need for in person visits.
How does telehealth work?
Easy. Once you are enrolled in our program, a Clinician will contact you to schedule an initial intake. At that time, instructions will be provided for your first telehealth appointment.
Does telehealth negatively affect my quality of service?
No, you won’t miss a beat. Our Clinicians are available to support individual, group and family therapy, and medication management. Our Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment and Psychiatric Rehabilitation (PRP) Programs are also available through telehealth.
Technology can be frustrating at times. However, telehealth utilizes the same platforms that we use to communicate with each other on a daily basis. Give us a call and chat with one of our Intake Specialists who will guide you through the process over the phone.
