The benefits of online therapy are that patients can get treatment from the comfort of their own home. This eliminates commuting mishaps which cost time and money. Therapists are able to use emoticons instead of facial expressions.

Mental Health in Toulouse

Toulouse has a different little history than most other places in France. It was established as a military garrison and bishopric by the Romans. Even though the town was conquered by Charlemagne, it never became an important center for agriculture and commerce and remained a poor city. Due to the lack of assets and income, the city lacked walls and fortifications. The last war Toulouse has seen was in 1627 with the Huguenots.

The river Touch is navigable along most of its course, however there are rapids near Toulouse where it drops 90 meters in 14 kilometers. Another important geographical feature of Toulouse is the small enclave of Montauban just north. Even though it has a completely different region and department, both towns work together to improve their district and city.

Mental health is a state of mental well-being where individuals have no diagnosable mental disorders. Mental health is not the same as mental illness, where individuals may have one or more diagnosable mental disorders at a given time. The proportion of people with depression increased from 1996 to 2005 in France by nearly 20%. A study on 15-24 year olds found that 12% have self-harmed and 16.2% have suffered from an eating disorder at least once in their life. Recent statistics show that between 2011 and 2015, France has had a depression rate of 4.4%. Although this number does not look like much compared to other countries, France is ranked 19 out of 21 European countries for antidepressant use.
