Telepsychiatry is mental and behavioral health care delivered through real-time videoconferencing in a secure, private place. It is great for allowing more people access to behavioral health care. Since there is a significant nationwide shortage of mental health professionals, telepsychiatry makes it easier for them to see more people in more places. Telepsychiatry clinicians are experts in their field and trained in providing quality care through technology.

Providers: Dr. David Leavitt
