The Role of Telepsychology Services for Community Psychiatry in the Pandemic Era
Psychologist R.R. Rani Meita Pratiwi Subagyono said that telepsychology services are now very helpful in helping the psyche of the Indonesian people.
According to him, during this pandemic, this technology has actually helped psychologists and the public to overcome mental problems.
“Telepsychology is an alternative during a pandemic where we cannot meet face-to-face activities due to social restrictions. However, the community still needs psychological help,” he said virtually at the Lauch of GorryWell App, Wednesday (23/6/2021).
The woman who is familiarly called Rani explained that telepsychology itself is a psychological service using online communication technology. So, medical personnel and patients can be connected to each other without meeting face to face.
Usually, patients who need psychological treatment assistance will be consulted face to face. But with technology, it can be done only with applications that are on mobile phones or other devices.
Therefore, the role of telepsychology services also helps patients who live in remote areas, making it difficult to consult a psychologist.
“Many in Indonesia have minimal access to have their mental problems checked by experts. They tend to be negligent because they are unable to reach a place of treatment. Finally, the mental problems that he suffered were not helped because of the limited access. However, with technology, we can now communicate without distance,” added Rani.
Not only that, the stigma in Indonesia about someone who goes to see a psychology doctor is still underestimated.
Someone who deals with psychology is often labeled as having mental illness. Embarrassed by the title, someone who should have needed medical assistance became afraid.
