Telepsychiatry Services at UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital

Our Telepsychiatry Program offers the following psychiatric and mental health services to patients and professionals:


Outpatient Telepsychiatry Services

The Telepsychiatry Program provides access to mental health services in counties across Pennsylvania that before had little to no psychiatric care.

We offer these outpatient services through a partnership with the Community Care Behavioral Health Organization. Community Care manages mental health services for Pennsylvanians who receive Medical Assistance.

Using videoconferencing, patients at their local behavioral health centers can:

  • Consult with a UPMC psychiatrist virtually, with support from a nurse or social worker.
  • Receive treatment and medication management on a routine basis.
  • Increase engagement with mental health treatment.
