Telepsychiatry includes the medical services through modern digital media. On-line psychiatric and psychotherapeutic treatment is effective and safe as well as therapeutically equivalent compared to traditional off-line treatment. In times of epidemic crisis and restrictions on outpatient advice, telepsychiatry is an alternative and recommended method. The article presents recommendations on conducting online visits in psychiatric care prepared by the Scientific Section of Telepsychiatry of the Polish Psychiatric Association. The form and subject of conducting tele-visits were discussed, including reactive and somatic factors, and a psychiatric and somatic tele-visit scheme was also proposed.
