Telehealth support to keep you safe, healthy and connected!
The need for at-home mental health care and evaluations has never been greater than it is today.
As an organization, we are committed to adapting our treatment programs to meet the needs of our community.
Patients will always come first, and our full continuum of care will always be available to those who need it.
Telehealth is a form of video conferencing allowing psychiatrists and therapists to provide services to patients outside of the office, for example at the patient’s home or workplace. It also provides the opportunity for consultation with family members, teachers and other providers involved in the patient’s care.
