Talk to a Therapist From Your Own Couch

therapyMDLIVE is convenient, private, and fast—at no cost to you.

We all know the importance of good physical health, but positive mental health matters, too. When you have a strong sense of well-being, you can cope with the stresses of life, work productively and maintain meaningful relationships.

Many things can trigger a mental health issue in an otherwise healthy person; for example, stress, relationship issues, a serious illness, feeling lonely or isolated, the death of a loved one, or a traumatic event. In addition, past events, genetics and brain chemistry all contribute to your overall mental health.

Depression, anxiety, grief, eating disorders and alcohol or substance abuse are common types of mental health issues. Most people with challenges like these can get better and recover completely with therapy (sometimes, in just a few sessions).
