When reaching out to treatment providers, we always encourage people to begin by connecting with resources from licensed mental health providers. While A Stitch in Time believes in the power and efficacy of treatment, you are responsible for interviewing and selecting the provider or treatment. As A Stitch in Time does not provide treatment services, A Stitch in Time cannot accept responsibility for any of the services provided by these or any other providers.
