Mental Health Update: Phone Therapy

Feb 15, 2009

Instead of trekking to a counselor's office, you might consider just picking up the phone. A new study from Northwestern University suggests that depressed patients who regularly talk it out with a counselor over the phone are much more likely than those who have in-person sessions to stick with treatment (and as likely to get relief).

Phone therapy can be a good option for people who find it too difficult to travel to a therapist's office because of where they live or a physical or mental condition that makes it hard for them to get around, says lead researcher David C. Mohr, PhD, a professor at Northwestern University.

The drawbacks: Face-to-face sessions may improve your connection with your therapist (she can pick up on nonverbal cues), and most insurance companies don't cover phone therapy. In-person treatment remains essential for people with severe mental health issues, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
