Addressing mental health concerns is our primary focus at Gagne Behavioral Health Care. On average, there are only 7 in-person psychiatry professionals for every 100,000 Florida residents. This shortage of psychiatric professionals within the state of Florida creates a need to rethink how healthcare is delivered to those who require it. The introduction of Florida telepsychiatry ensures that people have the option of receiving the assistance and care they deserve.

Throughout Florida, telepsychiatry will bring mental health care to all areas of the state, especially to our senior population. Seniors over the age of 60 make up 23% of Florida’s population. Seniors are also one of the most vulnerable populations when it comes to mental health. The services we provide for seniors include Alzheimer’s and dementia treatments such as medications and CBD. We also include care for depression, anxiety, and memory loss in older adults.

Senior patients require quality mental health care as they age, because memory loss in seniors and depression in older adults can compromise their quality of life. It’s important to reach senior patients through telemedicine. Florida seniors are important to us, and we endeavor to provide care in the place where they are most comfortable. For many seniors, that place may be right in their own home.

Rural and remote areas are the most affected by a lack of access to healthcare. Gagne Behavioral Health Care can reach these areas and provide quality mental healthcare through telepsychiatry.

How We Reach People:

We utilize video conference technology, called telemedicine, to help our patients. Through this technology, we’re able to provide evidence based assessments, therapies, patient education, and medication management. This enables our licensed mental health professionals to individualize treatment and keep in contact with patients, even from miles away.

Telemedicine is ideal for seniors who live in rural areas, assisted living communities, who are unable to travel, or who don’t have the time to wait in a medical center, Florida Telemedicine allows us to give everyone the opportunity for quality medical care.

Telepsychiatry provides numerous benefits for participants. Telepsychiatry reduces the need for costly trips to the emergency room or physician’s offices. Telepsychiatry also guarantees expedient mental health care for patients. The availability of these services also helps to make psychiatry and mental health visits more affordable, especially for those on a fixed income. Through telemedicine Florida will be able to improve our healthcare outcomes.
