The Community Telepsychiatry Program started because of the need for full spectrum community mental health services in rural areas across the state. Built on the success of the SCDMH Emergency Department Telepsychiatry Program, SCDMH has equipped its community mental health centers and mental health clinics to provide psychiatric treatment services to its patients via Telepsychiatry. The Community Telepsychiatry Program has provided psychiatric treatment services to SCDMH patients throughout South Carolina since August 2013.
