It’s an unfortunate fact that one-in-four Americans will suffer a mental or emotional disability this year and that only a small fraction will ever seek help. Worse yet, more than 34% of Americans who do seek counseling for mental health issues experience barriers that make it either difficult or impossible to get the care they need.
Although the prevalence and severity of America’s mental health crisis can not be understated, it’s no secret that emotional support animals can provide those in need with a tremendous amount of comfort and assistance, and the health benefits of ESAs are very well documented.
That’s why CertaPet provides easy and discreet online access to mental health services for people living with an emotional or psychological disability.
CertaPet acts as an online portal to connect patients with licensed mental health professionals who can write them a recommendation for an emotional support animal because our goal is to improve the quality of life for the millions of Americans who may have no other options for care.
How It Works
The first step in obtaining your ESA recommendation is to take our FREE online screening based on the DSM-V. If you pass the screening, you may be a good candidate for an emotional support animal.
The next step towards getting an ESA letter is to have a consultation with a licensed mental health professional who can write your recommendation for an emotional support animal.
ESA recommendations by licensed mental health professionals are often required by landlords when requesting to keep an an animal in no-pet housing, and also by most airlines when traveling with an ESA.
If approved, you will receive an electronic copy of your ESA letter via email, as well as a physical copy via USPS Priority Mail. Customers typically receive their ESA letter within 5 business days, and an expedited service is also available.
