Telehealth Appointments Now Available
We know that it can be hard to fit appointments into your daily life. Leaving home when you are managing mental health symptoms, or even just finding time to commute regularly to an in-person appointment can be difficult. We believe that mental health services should be easy and accessible, which is why we offer mental health services online.
What is Telehealth?
(Also referred to as Telemedicine, Teletherapy or Telepsychiatry)
Telehealth is a form of video conferencing allowing psychiatrists and therapists to provide services to patients outside of the office, for example at the patient’s home or workplace. It also provides the opportunity for consultation with family members, teachers and other providers involved in the patient’s care. Surveyed patients participating in telemedicine say they are very satisfied with the care they are receiving and that they feel telemedicine is a reliable form of practice. In addition, they find that they are able to keep their appointments on a more regular basis.
We use secure technology to keep your personal health information private. All telehealth appointments are subject to the same strict HIPAA standards as in-person sessions.
Research shows that telehealth services are as effective as in-person appointments when it comes to treating mental illness. Some people find that telehealth is more helpful because they are able to attend appointments regularly.
