ARCH TeleHealth Psychological Services - Bridging the Distance Overview Psychology has been helping people solve lifestyle problems since the late 1800's.  With the availability of video conferencing technology in most urban and small town areas, as well as in remote northern communities, effective and timely psychological assistance is available across the province. Most hospitals, mental health offices, post-secondary educational institutions, as well as a great number of First Nations Health Centres and corporate offices have installed secure closed circuit video conferencing equipment. ARCH Psychological Services, a private practice established in 1987, has maintained a commitment to better serve rural and northern communities.  ARCH has delivered services to many communities. We have been involved in the development of a program within Aboriginal communities designed to bring healing and restoration to victims and the communities. In July 2010 we opened a local office in High Prairie to serve the Lesser Slave Lake region. We are also committed to making the best use of available technologies. ARCH is equipped to work with local health care professionals and resources in a consultative process that provides experienced professional psychological services to distant locations.  Secure video conferencing technology is an optimum means of making consultation and treatment accessible to isolated areas. Process Psychological services can be arranged in cooperation with local health care resources or directly with ARCH Psychological. Psychological services can be arranged personally by identifying your local video conference host agency and then phoning ARCH at (780) 428-9223 to arrange a session. Professional consultation is available by calling ARCH and speaking to one of our senior psychologists.  A video conferencing session can then be arranged at a mutually convenient time. ARCH TeleHealth Psychology can also provide professional training for front-line workers in a variety of interest areas.  Critical incident debriefing and crisis intervention can also be arranged through our office.
