Tackling High-Acuity Cases in Higher Education with Telepsychiatry

More and more college students are experiencing severe anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation, prompting additional need for high-quality psychiatric care on college campuses. The challenge for many institutions is finding psychiatric providers, let alone providers who understand the student population and are able to provide higher levels of care for students experiencing severe depression, bipolar disorder I and II, complicated ADHD, suicidal ideation, and other psychiatric conditions. 

Turning to telepsychiatry, institutions have the opportunity to increase access to psychiatric care while reducing costs, protecting student privacy, and providing individualized care. At Mantra Health, we’ve built a telepsychiatry model around collaboration, clinical expertise, and evidence-based best practices, understanding that students need greater access to quality care and on-campus clinicians need more visibility into the students’ treatment plan. 

Join Nora Feldpausch, MD, the Medical Director at Mantra Health, to learn how to:

  • Work collaboratively with telepsychiatry providers to achieve clinical outcomes
  • Leverage the clinical model at Mantra Health to support students with psychiatric needs
  • Handle medication management through a virtual provider 
  • Engage in best practices when handling telehealth emergencies

Dr. Feldpausch will also share a case study which outlines the ways in which Mantra Health has worked with an institutional partner to bring high-quality psychiatric care to campus.
