When the going gets tough, sometimes it helps to talk with a trained professional who understands your needs and can provide assistance. Because busy schedules can be overwhelming and logistically difficult, the psychiatrists at FHN Family Counseling Center can now meet with patients online through live streaming video on a computer, tablet, or smart phone, as well as in person.
This capability makes it more convenient than ever to find help for depression, anxiety, mood swings, co-occurring addiction concerns, or other challenges. In addition to the convenience for patients, this capability also significantly expands our ability to serve more people in need. This is an exciting springboard for the Counseling Center's other uses for technology coming soon! The connection is secure and meets federal requirements for protecting patient privacy. Other behavioral health services, in addition to psychiatry, will be added to FHN's online services over the next few months.
