'ePsyClinic' is a website that puts users in touch with real mental health professionals. For those who are in emotional distress or suffering from mental health concerns, seeking out help can be a daunting task. This website leverages video chat technology to help those who are unable or unwilling to seek treatment.
ePsyClinic is an online service that can help users with anything from general anxiety to post-partum depression. The service is not automated, but instead run by real mental health professionals. When a user logs on, they are immediately able to consult a psychologist via video chat. The first 15 minutes of the consultation are free and during that time the psychologist will have an opportunity to assess the situation. The psychologist can then suggest a longer consultation or recommend that the user seeks outside help.
ePsyClinic's video-based consultations ultimately provide a convenient and non-intimidating way for those in emotion distress to seek the help of a licensed professional.
