Telepsychiatry Technology

Equipment or technology you may need for Telepsychiatry appointments.

To participate in Telehealth therapy sessions, you’ll need some basic equipment and technology to ensure a smooth, safe and effective experience. Here’s what you generally need for a Telemedicine psychiatry appointment:

Internet Connection

A stable and reliable internet connection is crucial for video conferencing with your psychiatrist. High-speed broadband or Wi-Fi is recommended for better video and audio quality.

Communication Device

You'll need a device to access the telehealth therapy session, such as a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Ensure that your device has a camera and microphone for video and audio communication.


If your device doesn't have a built-in camera, you'll need an external webcam for telepsychiatry. Many laptops and smartphones have built-in cameras, so an external webcam may not be necessary in most cases.

Internet Connection

A built-in microphone on your device or an external microphone will be required for clear audio during the telemedicine psychiatry session.

Speakers or Headphones

You'll need speakers or headphones to hear your psychiatrist during the session. Headphones can provide better privacy and minimize background noise.

Zoom App

Your psychiatrist will likely use a teleconferencing platform or specialized telepsychiatry therapy software for the session. Ensure that you have the necessary software or app installed on your device and test it beforehand.

User Account

Some telepsychiatry apps may require you to create a user account or log in to access the session. Follow the instructions provided by your psychiatrist to set up the account if needed.

Private Space

Choose a quiet and private space for the telehealth therapy session to maintain confidentiality and reduce distractions.


Ensure that your device is fully charged or connected to a power source during the session to avoid interruptions during your telepsychiatry session.

Pen & Paper

Having a pen and paper nearby can be helpful to jot down notes or important points discussed during the telehealth session.
