Online therapy in Brasília

In the year 2011, there were more than ninety-two thousand people in Brasília who live with a chronic mental illness, such as depression or schizophrenia. It has been found that because mental illnesses can be hidden and go undiagnosed for years, there is a shortage of talk therapists in the area of Brasília, which is one way to help solve this problem. The availability of online therapy would allow those who need it to have access to it. Receiving therapy is not just for those who live with a mental illness, but also for those who experience traumatic events such as sexual or physical abuse.

The use of online therapy is not new and it has been available since the turn of the century as an alternative to person-to-person therapy. Therapy using technology is now more common, including text therapy, computerized therapy, and online therapy. There are various ways to receive online therapy; the therapist will either use an instant messenger or an email account to communicate with the patient.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
