Mental Health Matters and that’s why Tri-County Health Network (TCHNetwork) offers teletherapy services to our community members. Teletherapy is the delivery of therapy through a secure, live video connection over the internet – think Skype with a therapist. Teletherapy provides an important remedy to the limited access to behavioral health care due to shortage of behavioral health professionals in rural areas in the counties.
The goal of the Teletherapy program is to increase the accessibility of mental health services in rural communities by offering a low-cost and innovative telemedicine format of therapeutic counseling that Tri-County Health Network serves. TCHNetwork acts a liaison between the independently contracted therapists and teletherapy clients to deliver Teletherapy to students and adults. Teletherapy currently serves the student population in Telluride, Ridgway, Norwood, Nucla, Naturita, Paradox, Delta and adults in San Miguel, Ouray and West Montrose counties are eligible to receive services.
