***Online Therapy is not a good fit for everyone.
Online Therapy is not always sufficient for people with certain mental health concerns. Examples of situations in which Online Therapy would not be a good fit include:
1. when someone has thoughts about harming themselves or others, or if they’ve recently harmed themselves or others.
*******If a person is in a life-threatening or emergency situation you should seek out immediate in-person assistance by calling 911 or your local emergency number. “Emergencies” are life threatening, or potentially violent, situations that demand immediate response. In such instances, the public should summon police by calling “911.”

2. If someone appears to have delusions or hallucinations, online therapy would not be a good fit.
3. If someone is currently misusing drugs or alcohol, online therapy would not be a good fit.
4. If someone tends to have ongoing crisis issues, online therapy would not be a good fit.
