Mental Health Issues
E-mail or Telephone counselling is not suitable for you if you suffer from a serious mental health disorder such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder or clinical depression with psychotic features. Arrange for a face to face appointment, or contact your community mental health agency for assessment and treatment of these disorders. Rising Tide Wellness does not diagnose or provide intensive treatment for psychiatric conditions via telephone or e-mail counselling. Nor do we attempt to give advise regarding medication management, which should be managed by your family doctor or psychiatrist.
Please note that neither telephone or online counselling can provide adequate interventions in cases of crises such as child protection, trauma, domestic violence, sexual assault, or suicidal and/or homicidal feelings. In such cases please contact the local mental health, crisis line, family doctor, police authorities, or hospital ER, immediately.
You are responsible for your own actions. Any decisions or actions taken that you feel are a result of the e-mail counselling, remains solely your responsibility.
