The need for mental health never stops, especially during times of crisis. In fact, the demand for these services increases as people experience heightened anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or other mental health issues. Prior to COVID-19, telemental health was used primarily to provide services in areas without access to healthcare services, like rural regions. Now, it is used throughout the country.
Join us for the next virtual TechTalk on January 26th to learn more about using a people-centric approach to telehealth for behavioral health and recovery services in response to COVID-19. Our panelists will discuss if telemental health care is an effective alternative to conventional mental care, as well as the best practices and insights. They will also tell us more about what we can expect moving forward.
