Virtual care giant Teladoc is building out its behavioral health services through its latest program, myStrength Complete.
The new offering is designed to give users a single integrated mental healthcare experience.

myStrength Complete will be available to individuals through their health plans or employers in July, Teladoc said in its announcement.
