 Merediths’ Journey
Meredith has been feeling down lately. Feelings of isolation and loneliness are getting to her, and she needs someone to talk to.
She sees that as a HealthSelect of Texas participant, she has access to mental health Virtual Visits from the safety of her home at no cost to her. She chooses one of the vendors available and makes an appointment.
A week later, she has her first virtual appointment with a licensed mental health professional. The session is just like an in-office appointment , but Meredith is able to meet with the provider through online video.
Meredith continues to attend regular virtual appointments, and with the help of her therapist, she is able to start feeling like herself again.
