Providing Online Mental Health Support

 

Mental health issues are often under diagnosed and undertreated.  This is caused by a national shortage of trained and available mental health care providers and a stigma of requesting support.  To support our patients and our community, we are providing online-based mental health tools to deliver clinically-validated and SLUHN-supported care directly to our patients, wherever they are. 

We hope that providing care in a new mechanism will support our patients and reduce the stigma of requesting mental health support.  This type of care delivery will help alleviate the challenges of proper screening and support.
