Evidence-based and available anywhere, MyHealios telehealth behavorial therapy empowers your practice to help improve outcomes for caregivers and patients.
Practical, Convenient Training and Support For Caregivers & Patients Living with Chronic Illness
Providing proven condition-specific education, communication skills training, and problem-solving strategies via telehealth, MyHealios can help to reduce the burden of chronic illness and stress while also helping to limit relapse, hospitalization, or crisis. Regardless of the size or location of your agency, MyHealios makes guideline-recommended (yet often difficult to integrate) family-behavorial therapy accessible, cost-effective, and efficient – for caregivers and loved ones (who interact with patients 4 or more hours per week), for patients themselves, and for your practice.
Our health professionals have master’s degrees or doctorate degrees in the mental health field and assist caregivers and patients (as appropriate) every step of the way. We specialize in telehealth for mental illness, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, and severe insomnia.
MyHealios makes it possible for caregivers and patients to receive guideline-recommended, modern family behavioral therapy – in a convenient, cost-effective fashion.
Sessions occur in the comfort of busy caregivers’ or patients’ homes, on their schedules, using a basic computer, tablet or smart phone and intuitive technology platforms. Regular online appointments and between-session assignments solidify learning while active role-playing allows participants to practice new skills.
Following data-driven standards, we provide practical psychoeducation, communication skills training, and problem solving skills training to empower more competent caregiving (and receiving) that benefits families, patients, and your practice.

Here are examples of situations where MyHealios can help:
- You're seeing a patient with schizophrenia, dementia, multiple sclerosis or another chronic illness and notice that the family caregiver seems overwhelmed and doesn't know how to handle related behaviors or how to support the patient’s care plan.
- One of your patients is showing signs of stress and you identify the root cause as worry and burden related to being a caregiver.
- The involvement of the family caregiver is essential to your patient’s ability to stabilize his/her mental health disorder, avoid relapse or rehospitalization, or make progress towards personal goals.
