This course is new or has been updated recently.

Our purpose with this 2nd Edition, is to provide an updated essential how-to guide for conducting competent, ethical, and evidence-based Telemental Health TMH. In this guidebook, we focus primarily on the unique benefits and challenges of delivering real-time mental health services with video conferencing equipment.

We recognize that telephone, e-mail, text messaging, and other forms of communication technologies are used in practice, we focus primarily on video conferencing to give the interested clinician a quick yet broad-based overview of how to proceed with this particular modality. The researcher, educator, or practitioner who is interested in these other telehealth modalities is encouraged to see the list of resources available on the companion website:
