Innovative Free-to-List Mental Health Service Directory Improves Access to Mental Health Services


TherapyRoute.com offers a free to list international mental health service directory that empowers visitors to find psychologists and other mental health service providers quickly. Innovative features include socially relevant filters (Black, LGBT+, Non-binary, female) and tools that enable professionals to create their own website and publish high quality content.

Cape Town, South Africa, October 15, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Today, an increasing number of people turn to the internet to find psychologists and other mental health services. Apart from convenience, this frequently helps people overcome any embarrassment they feel by allowing them to learn more about a professional, or service, before making the call.

Even in today's times, it can be challenging for people to locate professionals that share their cultural background or language. Similarly, fears of being misunderstood and unfairly discriminated against often act as barriers to entry.

TherapyRoute.com includes features that help address such challenges.

Some Examples:

- Easy to use search. Nearby providers appear automatically
- Filter results by identity (Black, LGBT+, Nonbinary, Female...), language (Russian, French, isiZulu...), issue (depressions, anxiety...), and more
- Find online clinicians when no nearby results are found
- Thousands of qualified clinicians and providers to choose from

The following core values guide the direction of the platform.

1. Improve access to mental health services

TherapyRoute.com improves access to services by innovating tools to empower visitors to find the help they need.

Thanks to a team of volunteers in South Africa, the database includes many verified community clinics and hospitals. The intention is to link anyone in search of therapy or help, be they rich or poor, with a service that meets their need and means.

Many of the South African low/no fee listings are included in the following city-specific "How to find a therapist" guides.

Clinics and service providers from other regions of the world are encouraged to follow this example and list their services too.

2. Promote awareness of mental health and talk therapy

TherapyRoute.com equips professionals to publish mental health and therapy-related writing online. The site's growing library of excellent articles promotes awareness of the value of talk therapies that are proven to be effective, relational, and which respect human complexity.

3. Facilitate professional and service visibility

TherapyRoute.com enables qualified mental-health professionals to create a website and represent the services they provide.

The platform is free and open to all qualified mental health professionals, clinics, counselling centres, rehabilitation programs, and group practices. Private practice and community services are welcome.
