What are coaching, therapy, and psychiatry? How do they differ?
If you need to speak with your therapist outside of your scheduled session, you can reach out via secure messaging in Simple Practice and/or via non-secure messaging via their office phone. This is for non-urgent messages only. For all emergencies, please call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room.
How do I communicate with my therapist outside of my scheduled appointments?
You need a parent’s involvement to sign up for therapy, as required by legal and care guidelines. We encourage you to speak with your parent if you are interested in therapy. When possible, your parents are essential to your Care Team and help to provide the most comprehensive care.
Can I sign up for therapy without my parent?
We get it. If you don’t want to speak directly to your parent about signing up for therapy, you can reach out to a therapist to request their support with reaching out to your parent to discuss getting you started with a therapist.
What if I don’t feel comfortable talking to my parent about starting therapy or psychiatry?
We understand how important privacy is when it comes to your mental health. The conversations between you and your therapist will be confidential except for specific issues that we are required by law to share with your parent. Those issues include when your safety, or the safety of someone else, may be at risk.
