One of the suggested treatment options is medication. Traditionally in the U.S. that meant going to the drug store/pharmacy. 

Now, that X=the unknown is catching up with us, very soon you will be able to make a tele-heath appointment with a mental health provider. That person will provide you a prescription for medication. 
 
You log onto Amazon.com and request delivery of your meds, which are delivered two days later.
 
Amazon Pharmacy isn't the only way to have medication delivered. But there are questions about the possible disruptive nature of the company entering the healthcare space. 
 
In this episode, a brief look at the pharmacy service, some questions and concerns.
