Since I now Skype regularly with my 94-year old father-in-law and his wife, the concept of telemental health doesn't seem as futuristic to me as it used to seem. I was shocked to discover, however, that the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) was established 20 years ago, with the first applications of telemedicine occurring over 40 years ago. Apparently, I've been behind the times.
