What is Telehealth?

Telehealth, or remote health care, is a relatively new way of providing services for our communities. Unlike in-person services, telehealth services are done over the internet using a device that can connect to video, like a smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Using video calls, you can talk with care providers both one-on-one or in groups. As the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we operate globally, many healthcare organizations have started using telehealth as a new way to provide care.

Video conferencing programs are commonly used because they provide a safe, secure connection. At the Mental Health Center of Denver, we use Microsoft Teams to provide telehealth services.

The Benefits of Telehealth

There are some key similarities between receiving services in-person and through telehealth:

  • You and your clinician can able to see each other and read each other's facial expressions and body language.
  • You can keep your regular schedule with your care team.
  • You will not be billed extra to receive telehealth services.
  • Our staff interpreters are also equipped with video technology, and are still available to join your appointment if you use their services.

Telehealth also offers unique benefits:

  • You don't have to travel to your clinician's office for an appointment.
  • You are able to choose a safe, private space to have your appointment. For example, some people may feel their bedroom is their safe space, or for others it may be a favorite park. 
  • You don't risk exposure of yourself or others to COVID-19 when using telehealth services.

Hear from People We Serve

Lee, a person we serve, tells us the story of how she and her family began using telehealth services with the Mental Health Center of Denver after the COVID-19 pandemic began. 

With the Mental Health Center of Denver’s rapid transition from in-person services to telehealth, Lee and her family were able to maintain their regular therapy schedules. Lee described the transition as odd and foreign at first, but she quickly got used to it.

"I’d never used telehealth before or had a desire to use it. I’ve always been more of an ‘in-person’ person. This model has surprised me, though! It’s easy and beneficial for me and my family. It’s different, but it’s not a bad different. I know we’re looking at new norms as our lives change. When it’s safe for us to resume in-person services again, we’ll probably still use a combination of telehealth and our regular appointments at Mental Health Center of Denver," says Lee.
