As technology has evolved, so too has the implementation of telemental health practices and guidelines. The idea for this guide began several years ago in reaction to the proliferation of distance education and resulting questions about expectations that clinicians would provide mental health services to distant students. Recognizing that telemental health is a rapidly evolving area of practice, it was decided that creating a document to provide practitioners and higher education administrators a starting point to engage in conversations about how to best meet the needs of their stakeholders would be more valuable than a best practices document.
