Telehealth, or online mental health therapy, is one of the newest therapy options for those who live in Minnesota. All of our great cities – Fargo, Duluth, St. Cloud, Rochester, and Minneapolis/St. Paul – have traditional mental health resources. However, with the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, the needs and resources for mental health have changed. American & Global Therapy is among the first to provide comprehensive online mental health therapy for residents in Minnesota.
Lifestyle in Minnesota
There is so much to love about life in Minnesota, from the lakes and scenery, to the farmlands and hiking trails. Even the notoriously cold winters help to give the lifestyle a healthy rigor. The people themselves are called “Minnesota nice” for their famously pleasant demeanor.
Yet under the “Minnesota nice”, many in our state are struggling with mental health issues. Even before the pandemic, the mental health struggles that affected the rest of the country -depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and addiction – also affected Minnesotans. For instance, it was reported in 2018 that Minnesota has one of the highest rates of depression in the country. The rate of other serious mental health issues in Minnesota was the same as it was in the rest of the country. Public health specialists were noting a blooming “mental health crisis” in rural Minnesota.
The pandemic has only made things worse. The mental health issues – anxiety, stress, addiction, depression, and grief – that go along with the pandemic have risen dramatically. Couples also have suffered greatly, with the rate of conflict and domestic violence spiking. Yet despite this surge in mental health needs, the ability to treat them has been completely undermined by the need to socially distance.
