Convenient Online Therapy

Did you know that 50% of people with mental health conditions in Wisconsin do not access treatment? At WEA Trust, we believe that mental health is just as important as physical health.

With the addition of online therapy to our Amwell platform, now you can have video-based therapy visits to treat common mental health conditions. From chronic concerns such as depression and anxiety, to recent adjustment disorders caused by events such as grief or divorce, Amwell online therapy ensures you have affordable and easy access to the care you need.
