Skypiatrist Virtual Psychiatry in NYC
For example, older people, who have grown up with the negative stigma that has long been associated with mental health disorders, it is very common to find that they have a tendency to dismiss and downplay symptoms of an ongoing problem. Unfortunately, willfully ignoring what may be a diagnosable mental health issue can cause people to withdraw and isolate themselves from family and friends. However, the best help is more support, not less. This is why virtual psychiatry can be an excellent tool for older NYC patients who may not feel comfortable discussing their concerns in a more traditional office setting.
As a resource for children and teens, virtual psychiatry can play an essential part in ensuring mental wellness. Undiagnosed mental health issues can severely impact normal development and telepsychiatry can assist in preventing, monitoring and treating any issues all from the comfort of home.
For anyone else who may be experiencing symptoms, emotions and behaviours that feel too overwhelming to navigate alone, an online appointment with a psychiatrist can be a lifeline that is accessible anywhere, anytime.
