What Is Telepsychiatry or Telemedicine?

Telepsychiatry is a subcategory of telemedicine – a type of health care that is offered through the use of video-based applications such as Link to Video Application. With telepsychiatry, You First Telehealth is able to provide professional evaluations and recommendations to patients virtually who may not be able to travel to the office for a face-to-face visit or prefer the convenience of video-visits.

Many patients wonder how telepsychiatry will differ from traditional therapy or medication management appointments with a psychiatrist. While some may be worried that they will not enjoy consultation over video, there are multiple benefits to consider, including:

Complete video calls wherever you feel most relaxed and at ease, from the comfort of your own home. Even if that means staying in your pajamas.

Avoid delays and added expenses

There is no need to worry about getting stuck in traffic when on your way to an appointment, and long drives and expensive stops at the gas station will no longer be required.

Improved accessibility

Individuals living in more rural areas will have the same opportunities as those residing in densely populated cities, including having access to some of the best mental health care professionals available.

Increased flexibility

Many patients can become frustrated when they have to take time off work or away from their family to attend appointments. Telepsychiatry gives individuals the ability to minimize this time.

How does Telepsychiatry work?

Telepsychiatry works much like a normal in-office session. The only difference is the appointment will be conducted via video instead of in person. If you have any questions about accessing or joining your appointment with us, please see the link to the instructions below.
