Why Choose Telepsychiatry?
During these unprecedented times, millions of people throughout the country are being to stay home in hopes of slowing the spread of COVID-19. During this time of great uncertainty, we want to ensure that our patients still continue to get the psychiatric care and treatment they need to continue on their path of mental health and wellness.
Thankfully, living in the age of technology gives us options when it comes to providing mental healthcare services from afar. Learn more about how this remote option can help us to help our patients.
How Does Telepsychiatry Work?
At Psychiatric Solutions, we are offering intensive group therapy sessions virtually. By utilizing technology to hold these meetings through Zoom—a free app—we are able to provide group members with the benefits of group therapy while keeping everyone’s physical health in mind.
Services that are offered through our telepsychiatry services include:
- Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Adults and Adolescents
- Medication Management
- Psychiatric Evaluations
Just like our in-person visits, patients are required to set up an appointment time in order to benefit from this remote option.
Benefits of Telepsychiatry
Although the thought of speaking with a therapist virtually may seem like a foreign concept, there are many benefits of this remote-style therapy—during these unprecedented times and beyond. Some of these benefits include:
- Providing access to mental health services when in-person visits are unavailable.
- Increased feeling of comfortability for patients.
- Convenience for both the patient and therapist.
- Helps patients to avoid the stigma of seeking help.
- Oftentimes, patients feel more comfortable participating.
