The ability to access physical and mental health and wellbeing services from the comfort of your own home is now possible through telehealth. Wollongong-based Direct Focus Solutions (DFS) use the latest technologies to allow you to connect directly with therapists from a location of your choosing. Telehealth conveniently saves you the trouble of travelling, while also allowing clients from further afield to access the mental health support services they may not have previously had access to.
Telehealth is the provision of healthcare services via telecommunications technology. It is sometimes referred to as Telemedicine or Telecare. Using digital platforms, including mobile devices and computers, you can communicate directly with our clinicians using video conferencing to take part in a real-time consultation. Services may also include psychological evaluations, therapy and client education.
We are improving access top metal health services via telehealth in wollongong
With around 1 in 5 Australian adults experiencing mental health concerns at some point in their lives, the benefits of being able to access mental healthcare are significant
One of the benefits of telehealth is that there is no geographical limit. If you have a device that allows you to access the internet and a stable connection, you can utilise telehealth services in Wollongong, Sydney or wherever you reside. It is simple and easy, and is particularly helpful for clients in rural communities, those with disabilities or anyone without regular means of transport.
Improving access to mental health services via telehealth alleviates factors such as the need to take time off work or child minding. These types of limitations can prevent some people from seeking help.
Physically going to an appointment may be stressful for some people for a multitude of reasons. The comfort and privacy that telehealth appointments provide allows people to feel both a greater sense of calm and willingness to seek out the assistance they need for their mental health issues.
Telehealth makes it convenient and easy for mental health clinicians and clients to communicate directly. For our clinicians, The ability to monitor, follow-up and provide assistance faster and more effectively than using traditional appointments, is another benefit of Telehealth.
If you do not feel at ease using technology, your internet connection is unstable or there is little privacy in your location, you can always attend in-person at one of our clinics.
However, if you do feel comfortable using technology and your home or other location offers an environment where you can freely interact with your therapist online without interruption, you may want to take advantage of our telehealth services in Wollongong
