The mental health therapy options for those in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Evansville, South Bend, and even rural Indiana have recently expanded. Telehealth is a new and secure form of online mental health therapy and has become a critical resource during the Covid-19 pandemic. American & Global Therapy is a premier provider of telehealth for Indiana residents, bringing comprehensive online mental health therapy to those who most need it.
Lifestyle in Indiana
If you have heard the inside joke “There is more than corn in Indiana”, you know that it is true! From breathtaking vistas on the plains, to sandy beaches and wooded ravines, residents in Indiana get to enjoy a quiet but sublime beauty. The Hoosiers of our great state love sports, food festivals, the big race at the “Brickyard”, and much more… Indiana is Americana at its finest.
But just like the rest of the country, Indianans face the burden of mental health issues. Despite our friendly culture, we still struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and addiction. The rate of serious mental health issues here is the same as it is for the country. However, access to mental health is among the worst in the country, with Indiana ranking 45 out of 50 in terms of providing access to mental health resources. For those who live in rural areas, this lack
of mental health care can be much worse.
The tragedy of the Covid-19 pandemic has only magnified this issue. The mental health burden of Indiana residents – anxiety, stress, addiction, depression, and grief – has risen dramatically with the pandemic. Couples are also suffering, with fighting, separation, and domestic violence becoming heartbreakingly common. Yet despite this surge in mental health needs, the need to socially distance has nearly neutralized all access to mental health care.
