What is Telehealth?
Telehealth refers to a phone or video conference consultation involving communication between you and your clinician.
How many treatment sessions can be accessed?
If you are eligible for telehealth psychological services, you can receive up to 10+ telehealth sessions with a mental health professional per calendar year
What equipment do you need to access the service?
You will need access to a quiet, private space; a device, i.e. smartphone, laptop, iPad, computer, with a camera, microphone and speakers; and a reliable broadband internet connection. If you don’t have the necessary equipment it may be possible to access telehealth equipment through your GP or local community centre.
Is a telehealth consultation as effective as a face-to-face consultation?
Psychological treatment provided using either phone or video conferencing has been found to be as effective as a face-to-face appointment for a variety of mental health problems. Your GP and mental health provider will talk to you about whether telehealth consultations are appropriate and suitable for you.
