Teletherapy Aimed to Make Mental Health Care More Inclusive. The Data Show a Different Story
For years, teletherapy has been pitched as the next frontier in mental-health care. Unlike medical disciplines requiring a more hands-on approach—say, physical therapy or surgery—talk therapy has long seemed a natural and effective fit for telehealth.

She could get through a yoga class without hitting a wall. “I felt like I had some energy,” she says, “but I didn’t...
