The acceptance of virtual mental health services increased during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Bringing unprecedented challenges to the world and affecting nearly every aspect of our lives, from the physical health consequences to the social and economic disruptions, the pandemic left no stone unturned. One significant area profoundly impacted by this global health crisis is mental health. Not only did it highlight the importance of mental welfare, but it has also driven the growth of virtual mental health.

COVID-19 gave rise to a plethora of mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, loneliness, stress, and grief. The uncertainty surrounding the virus, coupled with the drastic lifestyle changes, social isolation, and economic instability, has taken a toll on people’s psychological well-being. The collective experience of fear, loss, and disruption has led to a growing recognition of the importance of mental health and the need for attainable support. With face-to-face interactions limited due to social distancing measures, the demand for accessible mental health services skyrocketed. This surge led to the rapid growth of virtual mental health services, which offer support through digital platforms such as video calls, phone calls, and text-based therapy. Virtual mental health services have helped bridge the gap between mental health professionals and individuals in need, providing a lifeline to those who may have otherwise struggled to obtain traditional care.

There are many different reasons as to why a person may prefer virtual mental health services instead of in person care. Whether it be lack of transportation, conflicting personal schedules between the client and mental health professional or just no longer feeling comfortable in public settings, a virtual option is a great perk to have when choosing insurance coverage.
