Telemental Health 101

ATA COVID-19 Response Webinar Series

The usage of telemental health services has been steadily increasing over the past few years and the COVID-19 pandemic is now compelling even more behavioral health providers and organizations to implement telehealth into their practices to continue delivering care during this crisis. In this webinar, Tania Malik, Co-founder, and CEO of Virtual Medical Group led a comprehensive conversation on the fundamentals and best practices of telemental health. She and her colleagues covered a range of topics including how to transition your in-person practice to a virtual one, the tools, considerations, and recommendations that providers should evaluate, and how all clinicians during this time can use their virtual visits to help identify potential mental health concerns with patients.
