California needs online psychiatry


As 5,566,000, or 18.5% of adults living in California experience mental illness, the need for online psychiatry is substantial. Mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, or insomnia often go untreated due to the lack of access to affordable mental healthcare. With Minded, you can receive the care you need affordably. Whether you’re in the Bay Area, Fresno, or Los Angeles, you can connect with Minded’s team of psychiatrists to get the proper care and medication you deserve. 

Still trying to decide if getting psychiatric care is right for you? Book an appointment to receive an online consultation with a psychiatric professional in California today.
