Over 43 million Americans struggle with mental health. Every day, more people are speaking out and seeking help. While many resources are available, finding a qualified and experienced psychiatrist can be challenging. One avenue many people are exploring is online psychiatry, which could form an integral part of your journey to better everyday mental health.

What Is Online Psychiatry?

Telepsychiatry services, better known as online psychiatry, connect you to a doctor on demand. Instead of waiting to get an appointment for an evaluation or visiting a clinic in person, you can talk to board-certified psychiatrists and licensed therapists via your phone or video chat.

Online psychiatry is especially effective in talk therapy, managing an existing mental health condition, and setting up a personalized treatment plan.

Using an online psychiatry service is a great way to refocus your efforts on improving your mental health while also making lifestyle changes to supplement your treatment.

Tips for Improving Your Mental Health

There are many ways you can improve your mental health every day. Some of the best tips include:

Make Time for Yourself

Take time each day to take care of yourself. Spending time doing your hair or personal grooming is a great way to help you feel better about yourself mentally and physically.

Do One Thing Each Day That Makes You Happy

Getting stuck in daily responsibilities can take a toll on your mental health. By stopping to do at least one thing for yourself that you enjoy—working on a hobby, reading a book, grabbing a Starbucks—you have added at least one positive note to your day that you can look back on and feel happy about.

Get Fresh Air

Taking five minutes to fill your lungs with fresh air when your brain gets foggy can help calm your mind, reset, and relieve headaches, allowing you to continue your day with a fresh mindset.

Say ‘No’

It can be hard to say no when a family member or friend asks something from us. However, if you don’t have the capacity, the want, or the time, know that it’s okay to say no. Stretching yourself thin to appease others adds additional stress on yourself and potential tension to that relationship.

Make a Mental ‘To-Do’ List

Plan out the night before or in the morning what you want to accomplish for the day and tackle it one step at a time. Having that level of organization gives your mind some clarity and course of action for when you do find yourself getting lost or distracted.

Stay in Tune

It’s important to listen to your inner self and check in. ‘How am I feeling today?’ If you start to get overwhelmed, stop and ask yourself, ‘why am I getting so frustrated or anxious today?’ It’s easy to get overloaded and lose the entire day when you get caught up in negative emotions.

Benefits of Seeing an Online Psychiatrist

Having someone to talk to or reach out to when things get overwhelming is important. In many cases, online psychiatry provides benefits visiting a psychiatrist face to face doesn’t.

These benefits include:

  • You can schedule an appointment 24/7, and you don’t need to wait days to hear back from your psychiatrist.

  • You can get near-instant help with medication management.

  • Easy access to mental health help can help you rethink your therapy.

  • Many online psychiatrists accept insurance and can work with your primary care physician to provide collaborative care.

  • You don’t have to spend hours in clinics every week or travel to and from your psychiatrist’s practice.

What's the Difference between Herpes and HPV?

Both common in the United States, herpes and HPV can often be confused with each other due to what develops on the skin after either infects a person. Herpes, which causes sores that are often called fever blisters, is a viral STD that, when left untreated, makes it easier to get infected with other STDs like HIV. HPV, or human papillomavirus, is often called genital warts and results in warts.
