Series: How do we do ‘cultural safety’ in the time of COVID-19?
Session: Using ‘telehealth’ during COVID-19

The session
The move to provide more mental health care via phone and video technology has been swift and far reaching. Communities and services alike are grappling with what this means. How do people feel about using technology and not seeing practitioners in person? What are the implications for cultural safety and ensuring consumers experience respect and agency? Is telehealth overcoming barriers to accessing appropriate mental health support?

The session will include an open conversation among advocates and professionals. Panellists will share their experience of using telehealth during the current time of COVID-19, offer their insights and discuss emerging practice principles. They will discuss the challenges and opportunities as well consider some of the ethical issues associated with using telehealth to provide mental health support.

VTMH webinar sessions are open to individuals, from all disciplines and working in all sectors, who are based in Australia and interested in diversity and mental health.
