The following are the terms and conditions (hereinafter referred to as the "Agreement") which govern your access and use of our online platform through which counseling may be provided (hereinafter referred to as the "Platform"). This Website is owned and operated by Health Score Inc., 256 Chapman STE 105-4 Newark, Delaware 19702, incorporated in the United States. Its affiliates, partners, representatives, employees, and contractors (hereinafter referred to as “DoMental”, “We”, “Our”, or “Us”) provide you (hereinafter referred to as “You”, “Your”, “User”, or “Users”) with Web access or mobile application access to the Platform.
By accessing or using the Platform, You are entering into this Agreement. You should read this Agreement carefully before starting to use the Platform. If You do not agree to be bound to any of the terms of this Agreement, You must not access or use the Platform.
The Platform may be used to connect You with a practitioner providing the counselling (hereinafter referred to as “Counselor”), who will provide You with services through the Platform (hereinafter referred to as “Counselor Services”).
We require every Counselor providing Counselor Services on the Platform to be an accredited, trained, and experienced licensed psychologist, marriage and family therapist, clinical social worker, professional counselor, or of similar professional certification. Counselors must have a relevant academic degree in their field, at least 3 years of experience, at least 1000 hours of relevant experience, and be qualified and certified by their respective professional board
The Counselors are independent providers who are neither employees, agents, or representatives of DoMental. The Platform’s role is limited to enabling the Counselor Services while the Counselor Services themselves are the responsibility of the Counselor who provides them. If You feel the Counselor Services provided by the Counselor do not fit Your needs or expectations, You may change to a different Counselor who provides services through the Platform. If a Counselor You have been connected with stops using the Platform at any time after You have been connected, We will send an email to notify You that Your Counselor is no longer on the Platform and that You have the opportunity to match with a new Counselor.
While We hope the Counselor Services are beneficial to You, You understand, agree, and acknowledge that they may not be the appropriate solution for all needs and that they may not be appropriate for every particular situation and/or may not be a complete substitute for a face-to-face examination and/or care in every particular situation.
If You are thinking about suicide, are considering harming Yourself or others, feel that any other person may be in any danger, or if You have any medical emergency, You must immediately call the emergency service number (911) and notify the relevant authorities. Seek immediate in-person assistance. The Platform is not designed for use in any of the aforementioned cases and the Counselors cannot provide the assistance required in any of the aforementioned cases. The platform is not intended for the provision of clinical diagnosis requiring an in-person evaluation and You should not use it if You need any official documentation or approvals for purposes such as, but not limited to, court-ordered counseling. It is also not intended for any information regarding which drugs or medical treatment may be appropriate for You, and You should disregard any such advice if delivered through the platform. Do not disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining in-person care from Your doctor or other qualified professional because of information or advice You received through the platform.
