The landscape is changing for how to access and receive mental health programs, services and treatment. TeleMental Health is a very positive and effective new delivery system and gaining tremendous traction in the world. These new videoconferencing systems are secure, encrypted, and HIPAA compliant (medical records privacy rules). These programs work on your phone, iPad or tablet and computer. All you need is a good internet connection. This wave is already happening. As it turns out, most people these days are quite comfortable with online communication. Maybe too much so, but TeleMental Health Counseling is here to stay. It is safe, secure and confidential. Thus far, I have worked in over 23 counties with various video platforms. There are consents, needed, just as in any psychotherapy practice, training and etiquette to be followed. Video conferencing and video therapy makes getting help easier, more accessible with a wide network of providers. In the VSee photo below, famous Olympic Gold Medal swimming champion Michael Phelps, has done a commercial about how he was helped with his depression and saved his life via video counseling.
