Online therapy in Paris

Mental health has had a multi-dimensional impact on the lives of people. There are countless numbers of individuals in Paris who have suffered from different types of mental illness which results in psychological problems. The therapy process requires extensive time and effort to make sure that one is treated using various forms of clinical psychologist testing tools. This can be expensive because it takes frequent visits over an extended period before one starts noticing changes in their behavior. Fortunately, this has changed with online therapy Paris that allows patients to seek help online for free. One does not need to pay anything when they use Avanser’s specially designed program to carry out counseling sessions with professional therapists through video chat which helps them deal with their issues more efficiently than face-to-face interaction.

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

Mental Health in Paris

Mental health issues in Paris are a serious problem. Many people do not understand the repercussions of mental health and believe that it is a myth. It is important to remember that mental illness can be caused by many things such as genetics, life events, and the environment. The mental health statistics of France are two times greater than that of the UK; however, this number has increased by 20% in the last year.

An article published on May 1st, 2012 reported that “France falls behind other European nations when it comes to the treatment of mental illness”. The first reason for this is because “people don’t know what it is like to struggle with a mental disorder–so they don’t see it as real.” There should be more open discussions regarding this subject so people can understand how serious it actually is.

Around 10% of the French population is affected by a mental illness. In comparison to other countries, France falls behind in several categories. In Paris alone, the amount of patients who are treated in private clinics has increased by 200%. It is also becoming harder to find therapists in Paris because many are leaving for better opportunities. There are several possibilities on why this may be happening. Some include that the pay is not equivalent to their qualifications or that it takes an average of one year to find a therapist.
