Terms & Conditions

To be able to make available to you the information contained on this site, we are obligated by legal necessities to set forth the terms and conditions of usage that follow. We ask for your indulgence in reading the following material.

The purpose of www.mcapnj.org is to provide you with a better understanding of the psychological services available in Middlesex County, and a better understanding of issues in psychology. The site does not attempt to provide specific referrals, nor specific medical or counseling services or referrals for you or your loved ones. These materials are not for self-diagnosis or self-treatment. What is right for any one person is an individual decision. Thus, for specific diagnoses, treatments or courses of action, you should consult your individual counselor or therapist, who can discuss your personal needs, symptoms and treatment.

1. We strongly encourage you to get appropriate professional evaluation and treatment for problems—especially unusual, unexplained, severe, or persistent symptoms. Many symptoms and diseases require and benefit from specific medical or psychological evaluation and treatment. Don’t deny yourself proper professional care.

2. If your symptoms or problems are severe or persist beyond a reasonable period, you should consult a health professional.

3. If you receive professional advice in conflict with this website look first to your health professional. He or she is likely to be able to take your specific history and needs into consideration.

4. If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or anyone else in any way, please seek appropriate professional care immediately.

5. The information presented at this site is selective, rather than exhaustive. Additionally, medical and psychological information is constantly changing.

Thus, you should exercise particular care in forming conclusions based on what you read here.
