Telehealth Allows Access to Psychiatry Within Communities
By linking communities through telehealth, access to psychiatry during off-hours helps everyone involved.
I think theres some good community mental health support generally. We also have the telehealth – psychiatry telehealth so that from the emergency department in the night, when youve got somebody here whos in a mental health sort of crisis, they can telehealth to the psychiatrist on call in [Community X]. And kind of have an ability to get that expert opinion. Oftentimes I think the psychiatrists in [Community X] already know these clients and so its helpful for a physician or a locum to get that expert opinion.
