FRISCO, Texas (March 14, 2023) - DialCare, telehealth affiliate company of Careington International Corporation, announces the expansion of its Mental Wellness program to now include psychiatry. The new service, DialCare Psychiatry, provides virtual access to board-certified mental health professionals via video or phone chat for psychiatric evaluations, ongoing medication management and risk stratification to create customized treatment plans.
Behavioral health care can be difficult to access due to demand, but DialCare's telehealth solution connects individuals with a licensed psychiatrist within 48 hours of scheduling an appointment without leaving their homes. Psychiatrists are available seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in every U.S. time zone and can help with mental health conditions including ADHD/ADD, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, sleeping disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse and more.
The new telepsychiatry service further broadens the DialCare Mental Wellness program which today includes DialCare Therapy, a service that grants individuals of all ages with access to virtual and telephonic counseling sessions with a licensed mental health professional, as well as a student-focused program, Dialogue, specifically designed to provide a virtual mental health resource for middle and high school students. Therapists are available seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. for assistance with a variety of mental health conditions.
"As the U.S. continues to face the growing gap between supply and demand of psychiatrists, we recognized an urgency for more virtual health solutions,"" DialCare President Jeremy Hedrick said.
"We are proud to expand DialCare Mental Wellness to include Psychiatry," DialCare CEO Stewart Sweda said. "Telepsychiatry can be an important component in the treatment of mental health conditions."
Beyond the Mental Wellness program that includes Psychiatry, Therapy and Dialogue, DialCare also offers several other telehealth solutions, including Physician Access, Teledentistry and Virtual Vet. DialCare's telehealth programs are available to organizations of any size or industry, employees of any status, brokers, benefits consultants and individual consumers nationwide.
