Solutions for Mental Health and Wellbeing
Telehealth pods can provide an effective environment for communication and counselling to take place. When a person is not able to physically visit their support person, utilising videoconferencing remotely allows continuous care of that patient.
In addition, pods can be a valuable way to deliver mental health care online to patients, by giving them access to regular online programs via a large screen rather than utilising a small personal device such as a phone. And unlike a public library computer or school IT lab, courses, programs or resources can be accessed or undertaken in complete privacy.
Monitors can be set up to provide direct access to a range of support services – with one-click the user can be taken straight through to counselling services, sexual health services, local GP’s and healthcare hotlines.
With these ideas in mind, Hush have specifically designed pods to ensure comfort and privacy of those using them to ensure they feel at ease. These pods work well in a number of places:
corporate workplaces looking to assist their employees to connect with their healthcare & other professionals without having to leave the workplace
in education environments (secondary, tertiary, boarding schools) who want to enable their students to have a ‘safe space’ on site
libraries, community centres, whanau organisations looking to provide their community members with a space to receive support privately
any other public or private organisation looking to provide a place for people to connect.
