NEW YORK, NY — January 11, 2021 — CHE Behavioral Health Services commends Governor Cuomo for his initiative ensuring that all New Yorkers have access to telehealth. CHE Behavioral Health Services focused on behavioral telehealth before the pandemic, and now we have seen the need for our services skyrocket because of COVID-19. The benefits of telehealth are clear and powerful. We have treated hundreds of thousands of people nationwide, and these are people who are in desperate need of help but for a myriad of reasons they can’t or won’t leave their homes. This initiative is critical, and we thank the Governor for taking the lead in what will hopefully be the start of a nationwide trend.
