What is Telehealth?
TeleMental Health, also called Telebehavioral health, is a modern method for mental health professionals to provide services using technology. Telemental health is the same as in-person psychotherapy but delivered through secure video conferencing.
Telemental health is a part of telemedicine and has been an integral part of the movement. Telemental health uses computer programs, video conferencing, internet programs, teleconferencing and smartphone applications for the remote delivery of mental health services including assessment, diagnosis, system tracking, and treatment.
Our providers follow all state and federal laws regarding licensure, confidentiality, and jurisdictional requirements. Additionally, the technology utilized in providing Telemental health services meets and/or exceeds those outlined by the American Telemedicine Association and other professional associations.
