According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 1 in 2 Canadians will experience mental illness by the age of 40.
Currently, publicly funded mental health care has wait times of several months to over a year. Private mental health therapists, on the other hand, charge an average rate of $120 – $200 CAD per 50-min appointment. In 2018, these restrictions left 1.6 million Canadians with unmet mental health care needs.
Online counselling is a treatment option that offers the same benefits as in-person counselling while reducing both wait times and cost. It also comes with the advantage of meeting from the privacy and comfort of your home through the HIPAA-compliant video platform, VSee, which offers a safe, private and confidential online meeting space.
