The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a variety of challenges for the delivery of mental health services for youth and families. As we all know, there has been a significant unforeseen shift to telehealth services, which has compelled providers to quickly adjust their approaches to fit this new and evolving virtual landscape. Fortunately, telemental health innovations have demonstrated effectiveness across a range of modalities. The literature in this area offers various strategies for mental health care providers looking to maximally leverage this technology. Additionally, research regarding telehealth suggests that its outcomes tend to be equivalent to that of in-person services, and it is already evident that our providers have overwhelmingly adopted innovative ways to facilitate effective telehealth service delivery. This presentation will offer recommendations derived from the evidence-base for increasing “telepresence” during telehealth interactions with youth and families, discuss policies regarding safety, and share lessons learned during the University of Hawaiʻi’s Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy—Child Section's implementation of telemental health services.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Gain an understanding of various telepractice recommendations;
(2) Determine which recommendations might be most useful to adopt in their own practice; and
(3) Feel more confident in their use of telemental health with youth and families.
