Telehealth Psychiatry

In February 2021, Lived Experience Australia offered a survey to consumers, families, and carers across Australia to provide feedback on their experiences of accessing telehealth psychiatry services. In June 2021 we conducted individual interviews and focus groups with selected respondents from the survey to explore in more depth their experiences of telehealth psychiatry services. Both of these reports are provided below.

This survey was used to support advocacy with the Australian Government Department of Health and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists to support the review of telehealth psychiatry services beyond COVID-19 and has supported the extension of this program.
