Frequently Asked Questions about Telemental Health and Kids

Parents have a lot of questions when bringing their children for therapy services, and this has never been more true than with the rise of telehealth.

Some co-workers and I put together a list of frequently asked questions that parents have about telemental health for their kids, and I thought I would share it. Most of the information here is general, so other therapists can feel free to use this when developing their own FAQ for parents. I do have many parents ask about my qualifications, so this document is specific to my practice, but you can use this as a starting point in your work.
