Telehealth Q&A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth is health care online. It uses HIPAA-compliant secure video-conferencing software to connect you to your health care provider, so you’ll have a face-to-face visit without needing to leave your home. 

What types of care can I get through telehealth?

At Northwest Psychiatry & Counseling, the team of diverse mental health experts specializes in counseling and psychiatry. Some of the many services you can access using telehealth are: 

  • Individual counseling
  • Family counseling
  • Couples counseling
  • Child counseling 
  • Teen counseling
  • Medication management
  • Co-counseling 
  • Faith-based counseling
  • Trauma therapy (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing or EMDR)

For some aspects of mental health care, for example, psychiatric assessments or starting new medications, you may need to come into the office because you might need lab testing. 

Most types of mental health care are available through telehealth; however, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a unique form of therapy that uses highly specialized equipment and is only available in the office. You can continue your counseling appointments online as you have TMS in the office. 

What are the benefits of telehealth for mental health care?

Telehealth is particularly beneficial for patients receiving mental health care for several reasons, including:

  • Appointments from your own home
  • No need to travel to and from the office
  • No need to arrange childcare
  • Privacy
  • No exposure to other people if you’re sick, fearful, anxious, or feeling unwell
  • Flexible appointment dates and times

Mental health care is a personal matter, and telehealth helps you keep it that way. The HIPAA-compliant secure video-conferencing software is protected against intrusions, and your information remains just as private as it does during in-office appointments. 

How do I prepare for telehealth care?

Northwest Psychiatry & Counseling sends you the information you need to log into the private video-conferencing room before your appointment time. You don’t need to do too much to prepare other than find a nice quiet place to speak to your provider without intrusions. Make sure your device is charged, and check your internet connection ahead of time as well. 

At Northwest Psychiatry & Counseling, the team of knowledgeable mental health experts strives to bring expert wellness care to the Northwest Arkansas community through easily accessible telehealth. Book your appointment online or call the office to schedule now.
