  • At Telemynd, we are deeply committed to addressing the unique and profound mental health challenges faced by women veterans. Our mission is to transform mental health care, ensuring it is accessible, compassionate, and tailored to the specific needs of those who have served our country. Recent studies, including a pivotal report by Disabled American Veterans (DAV), have illuminated a troubling reality: women veterans are at a significantly higher risk for mental health issues, including suicide, when compared to their male counterparts.

    The Urgency for Tailored Screening and Treatment

    The suicide rate among women veterans has risen alarmingly, with a notable increase nearly four times higher than that among male veterans. This increase underscores the critical need for mental health services that address experiences unique to women in the military, such as military sexual trauma (MST), intimate partner violence (IPV), and the challenges associated with pregnancy and menopause.

    Telemynd's Commitment to Women Veterans

    Our virtual mental health services are designed to bridge the gap in care. We offer comprehensive support through virtual medication consultations and therapy sessions, specifically tailored to the experiences of women veterans. Our approach includes:

    • Enhanced Screening: Early identification and intervention for MST, IPV, Suicidal Ideation and other risk factors are crucial. We have implemented comprehensive screening processes to ensure that these issues do not go unnoticed.
    • Maternity and Post-Partum Support: Recognizing the vulnerability of expecting and new mothers, we provide programs (I would say services instead of programs) specifically designed to address their mental health needs during pregnancy and the post-partum period.
    • Menopause and Mental Health: Collaborating with experts, we aim to develop targeted strategies that address the link between menopause and mental health, reducing the risk of depression and suicide.

    A Call for Systemic Change

    The journey towards equitable mental health care for women veterans is ongoing, and Telemynd is dedicated to leading this charge. By advocating for systemic changes and providing immediate support, we are working towards a future where mental health care is inclusive and effective for all who have served.

    Our Collective Responsibility

    At Telemynd, we understand the profound impact of providing care that recognizes and addresses the individual experiences of each veteran. Our collective responsibility lies in offering tailored treatment plans and screenings uniquely designed to meet the specific needs of each person we serve. This personalized approach is crucial in addressing the diverse challenges faced by women veterans, ensuring that every aspect of their mental health care is as unique as their service and life experiences.

    Telemynd stands at the forefront of this transformation, advocating for a shift towards mental health care that truly understands and caters to the individual. Our dedication to the military community reflects our belief in the importance of accessible, empathetic, and personalized mental health services. Together, we can make a significant difference, ensuring that every veteran, regardless of their unique challenges and experiences, has the opportunity to heal.  

    Requesting Care

    To request care through Telemynd, start by contacting your local VA and request a behavioral health authorization specifically for Telemynd. The VA will process this request and send an authorization code directly to both Telemynd and you. If you receive the authorization code, simply call us; we will verify the code and take care of any necessary paperwork for you. In cases where you don't have the authorization code in hand, don't worry—the VA will forward your request along with the authorization to us directly. Upon receiving this, Telemynd will reach out to you to coordinate your first appointment, setting the stage for your journey towards personalized and compassionate care.
