Virtual Health

During the COVID-19 pandemic, which has increased the population’s need for mental health and addiction services, the Hartford HealthCare Behavioral Health Network (BHN) responded quickly by shifting outpatient individual and group counseling sessions online.

Using the electronic video platform Zoom, the Behavioral Health Network now offers therapy services for all ages, says Dr. David Bendor, clinical coordinator of the Young Adult Services Medical Track, who is coordinating this initiative.

“We’re not just treating our current patients; we are intaking and admitting new patients, some of whom we may never meet in person in the traditional sense,” Dr. Bendor said, explaining that some new patients may only need support during the pandemic.
