Abstract: Video-to-home (VTH) is a patient-centered approach to delivering mental health care that has increased the reach of care to patients who face considerable logistical and sociocultural barriers. Despite high rates of patient satisfaction and acceptance of VTH, scholarly resources for expanding providers'' comfort and competence using VTH are limited to emergency preparedness or remotely managing higher risk patients. This article highlights other potential benefits, adaptations, and considerations for providers interested in expanding their use of VTH to engage patients who are difficult to reach or who have complex presentations.
