With telehealth, mental health workers provide their services through an internet video service, streaming media, video conferencing, or wireless communication. This online therapy is particularly useful for patients that live in remote rural locations that are far from institutions that provide mental health services. Mental health providers that work in telehealth can only provide services to patients currently located in the state in which the provider is licensed.
