Psychiatry Tech presents Future Of Mental Health David Guth on Telehealth, Political Polarization, and Clinician Shortages

The pandemic accelerated the demand for tele-mental health services. However, there is a shortage of clinicians. Those who do get help often have to settle for a provider with the wrong specialty, or no speciality at all. Fortunately, organizations like Centerstone–led by our guest David Guth–are working hard to make telehealth ubiquitous, and to match people with the right clinicians.

“When we talk about matching individuals with clinicians that are specifically competent in their area of presentation, we’ve got to do that in a tele-health environment. Because otherwise, what you’re looking at is geographical proximity of the clinicians and the people seeking care. And it’s gotten so specialized that you really need to be able to offer your compliment of specialists over a broader geography.” -David Guth
