Abstract

The shortage and inadequate distribution of psychiatric care providers decreases access to mental health care for children and adolescents. One solution to the shortage is telepsychiatry. Studies of telepsychiatry show that it is effective and well received by both clinicians and patients. Despite its obvious benefits, challenges to the use of telepsychiatry remain.
