Mental Health Advocate Supports Veterans through Telebehavioral Health Technology

PHOENIX (December 12, 2023) – The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and its Community Care Network (CCN), supported by TriWest Healthcare Alliance (TriWest) in Regions 4 and 5, are using technology in efficient ways to provide Veterans with easier access to the high-quality health care they need and deserve.

Today, through telemedicine technology patients can connect with providers and specialists through video calls and live chats whenever they need it most.

Telebehavioral health care and telemental health care are areas of telemedicine that enable Veterans to use technology to enhance their mental health treatment – regardless of their location or access to local in-person treatment.
