I am certified in Mental Health First Aid. However, my services are not mental health services.
If you come to me for help and show signs of a serious mental illness or suicidal thoughts, I will encourage you to see a mental health specialist and I will write you a referral. It would be incompatible with my ethics to work with clients who are in danger of harming themselves or others. If, after a review by a mental health professional, it is determined (in writing) that coaching would be a helpful supplement to other treatment, then I will gladly work with you.
