Telemedicine in regards to mental health has become quite popular as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic! Telemedicine implies the ability to access treatment from anywhere. As a result of restrictive mobility, online sessions were the only option for people to attend and get the help they required. Interestingly enough, it was found that telepsychiatry can be as effective as face-to-face meetings. However, such practice may also give raise to issues as well. It was mentioned that people without access to such technologies or the internet will be unable to attend their sessions while also raising issues of confidentiality and technical problems.
