Hurdles to finding help
for mental illness
Thank you to Kare11 for bringing Dr. Lisa Lovelace in the conversation for Suicide and Mental Health Awareness
Dr. Lisa Herman is the founder and clinical psychologist for Synergy eTherapy based in the metro area. However, her company is accessible, online, from anywhere in the world. Synergy eTherapy connects patients with licensed psychologists for one-on-one counseling over the phone or via video chat for a fee.
Herman explains the wait time is just a few hours at max to get in touch with a professional.
“Because we’re working on nights and weekends as well, there’s really not a lot of barriers for our program for someone to come in quickly,” Herman said. Herman also explained the service is helpful to those who cannot travel to speak to a psychologist. She also says the phone calls and video calls make it easier for those who struggle with social anxiety.
