Video calling allows you to have secure conversations with your therapist at a distance, using the Minddistrict platform. This page offers a number of short instructions and tips. So you can have a trouble-free video session with your therapist.
Video sessions are available on your computer, laptop, mobile phone or tablet. Use Google Chrome for using the Minddistrict platform, unless you’re using an iPhone or iPad. In that case, use the (standard) Safari browser. You can also video call with the Minddistrict app. Read more about video calling with the Minddistrict app(Opens in new window).
You need a Minddistrict account in order to use the video calling functionality. If you don’t have one, please ask your therapist to create an account for you. Has your therapist created an account, but are you having login problems? Check here how you can solve login problems(Opens in new window).
