Differentiate Yourself

Person Centered Tech’s Group Practice Telemental Health Program provides all the policy templates, practice forms and expert coaching needed to design your program, train your team, and launch your teletherapy practice.

  • Leverage your knowledge to stand out in a saturated market
  • Ensure effective, standards based care

Make Your Teletherapy Program STAND OUT

As behavioral health professionals, our ethical standards require us to have sufficient knowledge, skills, and understanding of any intervention or tool we employ in our clinical work.  This standard absolutely applies to our use of technology generally, and to telehealth specifically.
One of the best ways to meet these requirements is through a comprehensive training and certification program, like PCT’s Telemental Health Certification.  This equips clinicians to effectively and safely provide clinical services via technology.
