1. The information, discussions and reference materials offered in this online class and website are intended solely for the general teaching and guidance of our class participants. Unlike medical and mental health professionals, we do not offer specific guidance, recommendations or prescribed actions. Indeed, the most obvious limitation of any health class such as this one is the inability to take into account the unique circumstances that define the specific health issues of any given individual. Consistently, all content, including text, graphics, images and information, contained on or available through this class, is for general educational purposes only.
2. The information provided in the class and website is not intended to diagnose health problems and is not intended to treat any disease or illness – physical or mental. And the use of this website does not establish a professional relationship as provider-client/patient. In other words, we cannot and do not give you medical or psychological advice. Information offered in the class is not intended to replace or take the place of consultation with a qualified health or mental health professional. If you have specific questions about your situation that you would like to discuss with a professional, or have questions about new treatment possibilities as you take this course, please consult your physician or mental health care provider.
3. We also ask participants to understand that we do not have the resources or the capability to answer all student questions individually and directly. Where we can, we will enjoy personal contact with class participants via e-mail or phone. In most cases, however, we will be required to respond more generally. That is, we will offer responses within the course or on our website to questions raised that, in our opinion, may be of general value to all participants on the website or class. Again, the answers to these questions should in no way be considered specific medical or psychological advice or specific indicators for your health plan. Our goal is to share personal and student experiences, and provide general, science-based, summary information so that students are able to feel more empowered as knowledgeable participants in the progression of their own health and mental health.
