You can select a licensed therapist and schedule an appointment time that works for you. All therapists are licensed in South Carolina, but these therapists are NOT psychiatrists, meaning they cannot prescribe medication. Therapists who are certified to see adolescents will be identified with an icon; adolescents are considered those 10 and above.
If you haven’t downloaded the app, search Roper St. Francis Healthcare Virtual Care in the App Store or Google Play. You will need to register your account on RSFHvirtualcare.com before you can begin using the app.
In addition to this behavioral health offering, RSFH will maintain its Employee Assistance Program, which is free, confidential counseling for up to six sessions. If you have an issue that you expect to take more than six sessions to resolve, virtual therapy services would be a good option to consider. Visit the Employee Assistance Page for additional information.
