Residents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues can receive a free telehealth consultation through SUN Behavioral Health.
SUN Behavioral Health Director of Business Development Erin Willis said the planned telehealth service was expedited in response to the COVID-19 national emergency.
Willis said anyone 13 and older experiencing anxiety, depression, mental health or substance use-related issues can go to sundelaware.com to complete a patient information form and request a virtual appointment, available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
A behavioral health specialist will contact patients at the appointment time; guardians of patients under 18 will be informed the minor has requested an appointment, Willis said. Patients must use a device with a camera for the video consultation.
