When should I choose mental health services?

Mental health services allow you to schedule a visit with a licensed therapist, or with a board-certified psychologist or psychiatrist for help managing medications or more-serious diagnoses.

Therapists, psychologists,and psychiatrists are available for appointments seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. local time, from wherever you are most comfortable, by phone or video.

How do you match me with the right mental health practitioner?

Prior to scheduling a visit, you will complete a questionnaire about your preferences for your mental health professional as well as answer questions about what your specific needs are. You will be able to choose from all matching specialist profiles, which will display information including gender, language, and specialties
