SUN Behavioral Delaware, part of a network of community hospitals working to solve the unmet needs of those with mental illness and substance use disorders, is expanding its telehealth services in response to the COVID-19 national emergency.
Beginning immediately, individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, mental health or substance use-related issues can receive a level-of-care telehealth consultation from the safety of their own homes. The service is open to all Delmarva-area residents age 13 and older and appointments are available everyday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with plans to extend hours soon.
Individuals with video capabilities via laptop, cellphone or tablet can register at sunbehavioral.com/delaware/telehealth-consultation. Once they fill out a brief patient information form, they’ll be connected to a behavioral health specialist who will call to schedule a time for a private, video chat compliant with privacy laws and consultation. Telehealth consultations are conducted using the Zoom app.
