NOTICE RE: COVID-19

August 5, 2020 - Telebehavioral Health Services

Updated policies, procedures and services in line with recent health recommendations:

With continued increase in cases of COVID-19 in the State of Ohio, Carve Your Own Path has welcomed the adjustment to the use of tele-behavioral health as a viable and effective option for mental health service delivery. Due to the continued expressed need for services, we have decided to make tele-behavioral health a permanent service.

 

To support ongoing treatment and services, we are now offering Tele-behavioral health video appointments via a HIPPA compliant platform. This service will currently be offered at no additional charge to current clients, as an adjunct to in-person sessions due to COVID-19 Pandemic, until social distancing is no longer needed for health reasons, OR as otherwise deemed appropriate for the client.

 

New clients may inquire about Tele-behavioral health sessions, and this may be granted after initial consultation to ensure appropriateness of fit. Telehealth is not a good fit for everyone, and your therapist will help you decide if it is right for you.

 

Additionally, we are well aware of the financial impact COVID-19 is having on individuals and families. If you are concerned about ability to pay, please do not hesitate to discuss this with us for alternative payment arrangements. We also strongly believe in equality and justice, as well as the importance of culture, gender, sexual identity and other individual aspects which impact our daily functioning.
