What is Telepsychiatry, and Can It Help Me?

Published on: November 25, 2020

Telehealth Psychiatry

In this pandemic age, uncertainty and isolation are taking their toll. Everyone is wondering how to cope. And yes, the rumors are true. The pandemic has led to increased rates of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues.

Telepsychiatry, also known as Telehealth Psychiatry

Fortunately, a service called “telepsychiatry,” also known as“telehealth psychiatry,” can help.

What is telepsychiatry? Well, it’s just like working with a psychiatrist or therapist, but online. Telepsychiatry offers psychiatric evaluations, psychotherapy/counseling sessions, and medication management – all through the convenience of a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Some people may feel hesitant about doing a counseling session on their computer or phone.

It is going to feel distant.

It won’t feel private.

I won’t feel connected.

But here’s a surprising statistic from a recent Harris Poll: 

Of those who tried telepsychiatry during the current pandemic, 74 percent said they would like to continue their online counseling even after the crisis has abated. The reasons included convenience, enjoyment of using the technology, and reduced cost.

Telepsychiatry Equals In-Person Care

According to the American Psychiatric Association, telepsychiatry matches in-person care for diagnostic accuracy, treatment effectiveness, quality of care, and patient satisfaction. Telepsychiatry has been found to be especially effective in the treatment of depression, PTSD, and ADHD. It may even be preferable to in-person care for people with autism or severe anxiety disorders and for patients with physical limitations.

So, is telepsychiatry right for you? Well, if you have a quiet, private place to conduct the call and a smartphone, tablet, or computer/laptop, it may well be worth the convenience.
