MIAMI, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The 21st Century has arrived and iLookin.com has developed a self-focused, problem solving solution which bridges the gap between self- help, counseling and life coaching. iLookin.com inspires personal growth and development with our unique web interface.
To engage users, we offer access to established goals/tasks, an online journal, community forums, webinars and experienced advisors with which you can chat. iLookin.com is leading the way to promote a supportive balance between self-growth, life coaching and counseling at your own pace.
Unlike the 1970s when Aaron T. Beck, M.D. developed Cognitive Therapy as a state-of- the-art, highly effective approach to psychological treatment, iLookin.com utilizes the latest in technology to assist subscribers to reach their full potential.
Omega J. Galliano, VP of iLookin.com, and a three license mental health professional with over thirty years of experience states, "iLookin.com solves three major problems. We help people who want to grow and challenge themselves who don't need a therapist and have no resources for a life coach; we 'bridge the gap' by providing services for people in rural areas who have no other options; and, we offer available resources to professionals who are providing Telehealth as an adjunct to their services."
The National Alliance on Mental Illness reports that 18.1% of adults in the U.S. have experienced an anxiety disorder and among the 20.2 million adults in the U.S. who experienced a substance use disorder, 50.5%—10.2 million adults—had a co-occurring mental illness.
Particularly challenging for over 7 million people in rural areas, the utmost of quietness is issued in accordance to mental health, as if it is some sort of taboo:
- Accessibility - rural residents often travel long distances to receive services, are less likely to be insured for mental health services, and less likely to recognize the illness
- Availability – Chronic shortages of mental health professionals exist and mental health providers are more likely to live in urban centers
- Acceptability – the stigma of needing or receiving mental healthcare and the fewer choices of trained professionals who work in rural areas create barriers to care
"We are excited to be able to provide an efficient, effective way for people to bridge the gap of services whether it be in rural or urban areas," said Ryan W. McClellan, CEO of iLookin.com. "Our interactive system allows people the support they deserve until more traditional services are needed and established. And for those people who have a desire to challenge themselves, there is no better place than iLookin.com."
