The Marsh Clinics® offers telehealth as a critical entry point to intervention. Telehealth is a modern, efficient way to receive mental health care straight from a smartphone, tablet or computer. Utilizing videoconferencing, telephone sessions, and various other technologies, TMC is attempting to remove some of the barriers, especially the social stigma to mental health that deters people from receiving treatment. TMC’s unique emphasis on technology creates immediate access to cost effective, discrete and tangible treatment. According to the American Psychiatric Association, telehealth is one of the most effective ways to increase access to psychiatric care for individuals living in underserved communities (2015).
Telehealth works with the help of a highly qualified and trained staff of paraprofessionals, interns, case managers, counselors, therapists and psychiatrists. TMC comprises a competent staff available to assist people six days a week. A majority of our clients are referred to us through the court system— juvenile, adult, and family—the district attorney, social services, Victim of Crime, Bureau of Prisons and by reaching out to homeless shelters.
