Buffalo, N.Y. – As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, InSight Telepsychiatry’s own Scott Baker was interviewed by WIVB-TV News 4 in Buffalo, NY and asked to discuss how telebehavioral health services like Inpathy can increase access to mental and behavioral health care.
Baker spoke about the convenience of online behavioral health care through Inpathy, the virtual office to over 300 behavioral health providers. Another InSight team member, Melissa Harward, provided a demonstration of the Inpathy videoconferencing platform.
WIVB-TV News 4 reporter, Angela Christoforos highlighted how being able to access care online offers many benefits to individuals and families seeking behavioral health care, including appointment availability at night or on weekends, clinical effectiveness and the convenience of using everyday technology for secure sessions with providers. This is especially helpful for individuals who have issues with scheduling, mobility, transportation and/or local provider availability.
