Over the Road Therapy telemental health services exist to support the people who take care of society. Here are some sobering facts:
- Approximately 1.5% of the United States population suffers from depression, while 13.6% of truck drivers suffer from some level of depression—a vast disparity.
- First responders such as EMS personnel, firefighters, and police officers work in high-stress environments leading to depression, PTSD, and anxiety.
- Humanitarian workers and volunteers face traumatizing situations that lead to mental issues such as PTSD, depression, burnout, and anxiety. The deal with ongoing obstacles, security risks, and lack of support so psychological problems in a large portion of this population is inevitable.

We Remove Barriers to Treatment
People in “frontline” jobs face physical, psychological, and societal barriers to treatment. There is a stigma that still exists regarding mental health. Many people we cater to need confidentiality because they do not want to jeopardize their jobs nor their safety. We take extra precautions, especially for international workers, such as humanitarians who are often in highly-volatile areas. While we can’t guarantee iron-clad privacy, we do use the best technology available to provide a more secure environment.
We offer our services straight to the public. Neither your employer nor your insurance is contacted or involved with your treatment. We are here to support you.
We Care About Your Well-Being
Your well-being is important to us. While our services help many people, it is not the appropriate treatment if you:
- Are a minor
- Have thoughts of hurting yourself or others
- Are in crisis and need immediate help
- Have been diagnosed and severe mental illness
- Are under court-ordered or mandated counseling
- Do not near any of our offices and do not have a digital device or an internet connection.
