Conditions That Can be Treated with Telepsychiatry

Anxiety
Telepsychiatry helps with anxiety by allowing the patient to connect with a mental health specialist rapidly and in the comfort of their own home. Many people struggling with anxiety, particularly with forms of anxiety like panic disorder or agoraphobia, find it difficult even to leave the home. With telepsychiatry visits, Actify specialists can meet people “where they’re at”, working with them at their own pace to improve their ability to function.
Depression
Depression can be paralyzing. When in the depths of depression, even small tasks can feel overwhelming, if not impossible. This can be a barrier to those who need help being able to access care. The steps required to get from home to an office-based appointment are enough for some with depression to give up. In addition, in many areas, psychiatrists simply aren’t available. Telepsychiatry is a key to increasing access to expert mental health care by making treatment available even for those who are having difficulty functioning. Our providers are trained to help you find the most effective treatment plan for you.
OCD
Telepsychiatry helps with OCD by allowing patients to connect with a mental health specialist in real time. Oftentimes, patients struggling with OCD have symptoms of obsessions and compulsions that prevent them from even leaving the house. With telepsychiatry, patients will be able to connect with a specialist from the comfort of their own home, who can help find viable solutions to help reconnect with the world.
PTSD
Telepsychiatry helps with PTSD by allowing patients to connect with a mental health specialist rapidly and in real time. Those suffering from PTSD are often tortured by triggers that lead to reexperiencing their trauma, are easily startled, may have difficulty getting along with others because of paranoia, fear, or irritability, and may have perceptual disturbances. Enabling patients to connect to specialists from the comfort of their homes may give patients who are too traumatized to leave their homes a chance to find relief.

How Telepsychiatry Works

During a telepsychiatry session, a patient is connected with one of our certified Actify professionals through any internet-connecting device; typically a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. During these sessions the patient and the provider can see, hear, and interact one one another in real time. Initial consultations are conducted over 60 minutes, and follow-up visits are 20-30 minutes. The frequency of these sessions is determined by each person’s individual treatment needs.

Limitations of Telepsychiatry

Many people value the convenience of telepsychiatry. It is a valuable tool to provide access to treatment for those whose condition, schedule, or location might otherwise mean that they would not be able to have care. However, for others, there is no substitute for in-person, face to face meetings in a traditional office setting. Actify’s specialists can help you determine the most appropriate and helpful treatment setting for you.
