What is Telemental Health?
Telemental Health is the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance. It helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available to you due to your distance from our office.
We offer therapy and counseling by way of the telephone. In some cases, this can be as effective as the traditional in-office visits. There can be several advantages of phone/video therapy over traditional in-office face-to-face therapy. The most obvious is the ability to consult with a member of our staff if you do not live in the area. Some towns have few if any trained therapists and, even in cities, it can be difficult to find someone you feel comfortable with. This is of the utmost importance. You MUST feel
comfortable with your therapist. From the comfort of your own home or office, while on vacation or while traveling you can obtain help from an experienced, professional.
Another advantage is the convenience and privacy of the phone. You may initially have apprehension or anxiety about an in-person office visit; they may not be willing to truly express their feelings and ideas because it seems intimidating to sit down face-to-face. By using the phone or video you can talk without the self-consciousness one may experience sitting across from a mental health professional.
Certain Problems are Not Appropriate for Telemental Health
Persons who experience hallucinations or psychosis or who have persistent and serious thoughts about harming themselves or others should seek local mental health assistance. In these instances, your therapist can help you determine whether your problems can be managed safely and effectively via distance counseling. In most cases, they can, but we will provide you with an honest assessment in our initial interview. Here at DQS HEALTHCARE GROUP we are committed to helping you receive the help you need regardless of where you receive it.
Your Confidentiality is Secure
Everything you say in your session with one of our therapist is completely confidential. Confidentiality is your right. Information cannot be release to any person, organization or establishment unless you sign an authorization form or we receive a court order. All communications are conducted in a private setting and held in strict confidence. The doctor-patient relationship is unique in that confidentiality and empathy are an absolute part of the process.
The only two exceptions to your confidentiality would be:
1) If you disclose in your session that you are going to harm yourself or cause bodily injury to others
2) If you reveal a situation that may be considered abusive or dangerous to a child or to an elderly individual
Phone & Video counseling services are available throughout the United States & Canada; in the Caribbean and in certain parts of the European continent!!!
