Many counties in Sweden today lack the number of psychiatrists and psychologists required to cover the needs of the population. According to the prognosis of the National Board of Health and Welfare, the situation is thought only to get worse in the coming years.
Telepsychiatry, or the delivery of psychiatric or psychologic services using videoconferencing appears as a modern and sustainable solution to this situation, as psychiatrists and psychologists in other parts of the country have the opportunity and the will to work even part-time from a distance.
SWEDISH TELEPSYCHIATRY, SA. was grounded in 2014 with the vision to use these valuable resources in order to deliver services to those patients who are in need of them, regardless of where they reside.
