    • Benefits and Risks

      As with all healthcare services, Occupational Therapy via TeleHealth can have risks and benefits.

      Benefits can include:

      • Improved stress and anxiety management
      • Improved time management
      • Improved academic performance
      • Improved social skills
      • Improved life balance
      • Improved overall feelings of health and well-being.

      Since treatment effects can vary from person to person, it is not always possible to accurately predict a person’s response to treatment.

      Possible risks include:

      • Aggravation of chronic symptoms
        Should this occur, the student should report adverse effects to the Occupational Therapist to modify the treatment
      • Technological difficulties (i.e., poor resolution, sound buffering), resulting in impaired communications, and
      • In very rare cases, security safeguard failure, resulting in breach of privacy and confidentiality.

    • Confidentiality

      Information provided in Occupational Therapy sessions is confidential and will only be discussed with family members or designated others if students have signed a “Release of Information” form. Legal exceptions to confidentiality include: threat of bodily harm to self and/or another individual(s), child abuse or neglect, elder and dependent adult abuse or neglect, and as mandated by law. Information pertinent to treatment interventions may be shared with other members of a student’s health care team at Mt. SAC as necessary for providing cohesive treatment plans.

    • Important Information

      It is important to continue seeing your primary health care and mental health providers.

      Occupational Therapy does not replace the advice of medical and mental health providers.

      Students have the right to ask questions about interventions that are recommended and to discuss the potential risks and benefits of each specific recommended intervention. Students have the right to decline any or all portions of recommended treatment interventions.
