Online therapy in Jakarta

One of the most interesting new developments in Mental Health is the role that technology has come to play. In fact, online therapy can even be more effective than face-to-face treatment. This type of therapy works particularly well for people who suffer from certain phobias, social anxiety or PTSD where it can help ease some of their symptoms. In addition to this, a lot of therapists have been using Skype and other forms of online communication as a way to provide quality counselling services at a fraction of the cost.

In Jakarta, some mental health professionals have started to adopt these new technologies in order to meet the increasing demand for mental health services by making them more accessible and affordable without compromising on quality. One therapist has recently started to use the Internet as a way to extend her reach, by offering online counselling. She began, like many therapists do, by advertising that she was available for video calls on Skype.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Mental Health in Jakarta

1.8% of the population in Jakarta had a mental health condition and it is seen as a chronic, recurring illness. The government has attempted to combat this illness by providing free therapy, which has been mandatory for everyone who needs therapy.

The Jakarta Government provides therapy to those that need it under the National Action Plan for Mental Health as well as anyone that asks for such therapy. Treatment is provided at no cost to patients, where before there was a fee required. An example of one of these clinics in the city is Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital where there are 12 therapists that are available for consultation sessions. It is an outpatient clinic that does not have any beds or wards specifically designated for mental conditions.

Approximately half of the population have mental illness disorders or conditions. Out of which, 60% do not seek treatment. This is an astonishingly high number, considering the fact that there has been a free therapy system in place since 2015.
