MONTREAL, Jan. 16 /CNW Telbec/ - While our Canadian soldiers are engaged
in missions in foreign countries, the Internet portal www.help-online.ca
reminds the staff of the Canadian Armed Forces and their personnel here and
abroad, as well as their families, that they always have access to
professional psychologists to help them deal with the stress and problems they
frequently encounter in their jobs. www.help-online.ca has a team of
17 professional psychologists who provide consultation services to people in
their homes, workplaces or on missions.
According to François Lefort, M.Ps., psychologist and founder of
www.help-online.ca, "this is the first Web portal in Canada that enables
health professionals to conduct consultations remotely. We sincerely believe
that our telehealth solution can help Canadian soldiers when they are facing
an emotional and psychological situation that they feel is too much for them."
Furthermore, according to Stéphane Bouchard, Ph.D, professor at the Université
du Québec en Outaouais, Canada Research Chair in Clinical Cyberpsychology and
researcher at the Pierre-Janet Hospital, research shows that an excellent
therapeutic relationship can be developed using videoconferencing and that
psychology can and should play a significant role in telehealth.
The www.help-online.ca Web portal makes it possible to offer professional
support to individuals and families in their homes, while protecting
professional confidentiality and information security as required by
professional practice. With a team of 17 psychologists and state-of-the-art
technology, www.help-online.ca is a complementary service for people who wish
to consult a professional without having to travel, for people who live in
remote regions, for people who are in prison or have reduced mobility, and for
anyone who suffers from social anxiety disorder.
