Mednexus Mental Health was developed to facilitate access to mental health providers – counselors, life coaches, etc. Half of my practice consists of children and adolescents with depression, anxiety, ADHD, and autism. Unfortunately, my patients have to wait months to access services. This is particularly difficult for patients on Medicaid and Medicare. Many patients cannot afford the session fees charged by therapists.
One solution to this problem is to encourage therapists to implement group counseling sessions. This will reduce the session fees for participating patients while likely increasing the session reimbursement for therapists.
Please contact me via our contact form, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to help solve our mental help crisis.
