Young people today face a tremendous amount of pressure both socially and academically.  This pressure can trigger or worsen anxiety, depression, substance use, and other mental health conditions that keep students from acheiving their goals and enjoying their college experience. 

    Many students have trouble finding high quality, consistent treatment due to living in one place during the school year and another during school breaks.  Fortunately, studies have shown that young adults benefit tremendously from online psychiatry visits.  Students enjoy the flexibility of scheduling and the ability to maintain treatment from different cities that telepsychiatry provides.
