What is TeleSpiritual Health?

TeleSpiritual health provides a virtual face-to-face encounter for caregivers to connect with professional chaplains about their spiritual needs. This encounter provides a sacred space to connect with care and compassion across distances.

How do I know if TeleSpiritual Health is right for me?

As wonderfully unique persons, we all need connection, meaning and purpose in our lives. This can be understood as a person’s spirituality, and it may be viewed through the lens of a particular religion, faith tradition or practice, or a connection outside of established spiritualities.

A screening tool on the caregiver Choose Well site can help identify common spiritual health concerns. These may include desiring peace, pursuing better balance in life, and seeking to make meaning out of life events, to name a few examples.

Who will I talk to when I have a TeleSpiritual Health appointment?

TeleSpiritual Health caregivers are professional chaplains who serve within the Providence family of organizations. Professional chaplains regularly work with caregivers and patients. They are skilled and trained to care for the whole person (mind, body, and spirit) from any spiritual and faith backgrounds or practices.

What happens during a TeleSpiritual Health consultation?

A TeleSpiritual Health chaplain will meet with you at the scheduled time on a Teams video call. They will take some time to get to know you and your spiritual health concerns. They will listen, offer any resources that might be helpful, and seek to meet your spiritual health concerns in the best ways possible.

Is TeleSpiritual Health confidential?

TeleSpiritual Health is a confidential way to speak to someone a professional chaplain about spiritual health concerns. To maintain privacy and limit interruptions, it is recommended that you join the appointment from a private, quiet location. To ensure safety, confidentiality is maintained except in emergency circumstances where self-harm, abuse, or threats of harm to others are discussed.

How can I access TeleSpiritual Health?

A TeleSpiritual Health chaplain will confirm your appointment by sending an Outlook appointment with a Teams video conference link. You may call into the appointments through a phone or access Teams through a mobile device.

  • Appointments are available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Pacific).
  • Appointments are scheduled as 45-minute sessions.

Is TeleSpiritual Health available for patients?
