Developing and Implementing Telemental Health

The telepsychiatry developmental model described in this section is intended to help you go through the process in a systematic way of setting up a telemental health clinic from the beginning.  This model draws and expands upon the work or Drs. Jay Shore and Spero Manson for an article entitled "Developmental Model for Rural Telepsychiatry."  The telepsychiatry developmental model that is discussed identifies six steps that can be used to create a successful telemental health clinic.
