Show 314 What Is Ro Mind?

The virtual mental health marketplace is an ever-changing land of what was impossible is now possible. Whether or not it should be is a question for another time. 

Now might be a good time to ask those questions because there are a lot of new players that are being created outside of the traditional medical education and practice system.

This week, I'm taking what I call a window shopping view of a company called and Ro Mind.
They provide medicine, medical education via pre-recorded video and medical management services for people that anxiety, depression and seasonal affected disorder only.

I'm still working out my thoughts on the Ro Mind telehealth service.

On the one hand, if you already have a therapist or a mental health provider that can't prescribe medication, this might be a good options.

But there are issues and concerns I have about self diagnosing without a medical checkup.
Anyway, this is a quick look based on what I found when I visited the website.

If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988 or 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.
