Another option to access counselors outside your community is the Telehealth program. A television and a camera are set up in a private location at the Health Centre and are connected to a television and a camera outside the community. Telehealth works like a telephone, but allows the participants to see and hear each other. The session is private and confidential, just like when you see a health care provider face-to-face in your community.
