Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine rural mental health clinicians’ attitudes towards telehealth and how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected these attitudes. This study also examined how the amount of knowledge about telehealth and the amount of experience with telehealth affects clinicians’ attitudes. There are 200 Pathways’ Employees participants. This correlational study required the participants to take an online survey sent via email. The results showed that the amount of telehealth knowledge is positively associated with clinicians’ attitudes towards telehealth, the amount of telehealth experience is positively associated with clinicians’ attitudes of telehealth, and the negative impact of COVID-19 on clinicians’ job performance is positively associated with clinicians’ attitudes towards telehealth.
