Before the pandemic, the U.S. healthcare system has been improving the public’s access to psychiatric care. As with conducting school classes and office meetings, videoconferencing technology has helped to conduct medical appointments and sessions between medical professionals and clients separated by a physical distance.

Telebehavioral health services or telepsychiatry services are an exciting development in our mental health field, as it offers an affordable and simple way to revolutionize the mental healthcare industry and provide mental health support to clients who may not have easy access to healthcare facilities in their area or may not have the energy to go outdoors.

What Is Telebehavioral Health?

Telebehavioral health is like behavioral health; only the appointments and sessions are conducted using telecommunications or videoconferencing technology. Other terms related to telebehavioral health include telemental health, telepsychiatry, and telepsychology. The ultimate goal is to provide professional assessment and treatment to clients wherever they may be located, no matter their energy level.

Research suggests that telebehavioral health services can be effective for many clients struggling with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and other mental or behavioral health issues. 

What Are Telepsychiatry Services?

Telepsychiatry services may offer several benefits to clients, including increased access to professional care and overall convenience. However, not all clients will find it easy to figure out how to use technology that makes it possible for healthcare providers to reach them online. In cases like this, clients may be provided with instructional content to study or may be taught how to use the involved platforms and technologies before they avail of telebehavioral health services.

Using telepsychiatry services, mental health professionals can interact directly with clients. Some also choose to provide recordings of their medical information to educate their clients easily. According to the American Psychiatric Association (APA), telepsychiatry services can include the following:

  • Client education
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Individual counseling
  • Medication management or medication therapy management (MTM)
  • Psychiatric evaluations and diagnoses

When Should You Consider Online Mental Health Treatment?

It’s not difficult to avail of online mental health treatment options. There are many telemental health providers all over the country, and sometimes you don’t even need to be near them to benefit from their offered telebehavioral health services. However, it may be beneficial to choose one in your area. If you’re in Arkansas, visit any of our locations — Fayetteville, Jonesboro, Little Rock, or Rogers.

The bottom line is that telebehavioral health services can provide an effective and practical alternative to face-to-face psychiatric services. It’s suitable for clients of all ages, and some people — such as those struggling with severe anxiety disorders or autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) — telebehavioral health services may even be preferable to in-person appointments and sessions.

Some studies even support that telepsychiatry is more effective than traditional care. This could be because some clients are more willing to open up from the comfort of their own homes. It could also be because clients are less worried about the cost of their psychiatric care.
