Terms of Use

1. Eligibility
All clients must be 18 years of age, have access to and be comfortable with using computers and the internet and be presently experiencing depression and/or anxiety symptoms. 

2. Online Therapy Unit Services / Disclaimer
If an individual’s symptoms are deemed too severe, they may not be eligible to participate.  Online Therapy treatment may not be appropriate for a client if s/he suffers:

  • High risk of suicidality
  • (Hypo) Manic Episodes that are not currently being effectively managed
  • Significant problems with alcohol or substances that are not currently being effectively managed
  • Psychotic Disorders
  • Severe symptoms of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) that are not being effectively managed

A client who is unable to complete the time requirements of a program (e.g. being able to log in once a week for 8 weeks) will not be admitted into the program. Alternative arrangements will be made, such as referring the client to alternative services or asking them to contact the Unit when they have sufficient time to commit to the program.

Most courses are restricted to clients living in Saskatchewan. In some instances, however, we are able to provide assistance to clients in other provinces. Please check the course you are interested in to determine if you can participate. 

Finally, a client who has a medical condition that could potentially interfere with her/his ability to participate or complete treatment with the Online Therapy Unit program may need to be referred to alternative services. 

3. Password
Clients will use a username and password to access the web application once they have been accepted into an Online Therapy Unit course. Each client must ensure the confidentiality of her/his password. If there is unauthorized use of the username or password, the client must inform the Online Therapy Unit immediately.

4. Confidentiality and Privacy of Personal Info and E-Therapy Communications
Online Therapy Unit therapists must make reasonable effort to protect and maintain the confidentiality of the data and information relating to their clients and inform them of the potentially increased risks to loss of confidentiality inherent in the use of the telecommunication technologies, if any. This includes ensuring that security measures are in place to protect data and information related to their clients from unintended access or disclosure.

5. Withdrawal
Clients have the right to withdraw their consent for their previously agreed use and disclosure of their personal information gained from their participation within the Online Therapy Unit program.
