What conditions are treated by a telepsychiatrist?

A telepsychiatrist can treat all the conditions that an in-office can treat, although there may be some limitations. For example, if a patient has dementia she may have difficulty logging onto the computer or telepsychiatry platform, without assistance. A patient who is on a long-acting injectable must be willing to go to a local station to receive their injection, likewise, a patient on clozapine may need to go to a local clinic or pharmacy for vital signs.
