* It's totally confidential! You don't have to worry about who will see you in the waiting room. In addition, your insurance company, and possibly your employer, need not know about your request for services.
* It's convenient! You can email at any time of the day or night. You don't have to take time off from work or your other obligations.
* It's quick! You don't have to wait weeks to get an appointment. A response to your email enquiry will be sent within 48 hours.
* Written records. The response to your email enquiry is sent by email, giving you a permanent record of the advice given. You do not need to take notes during a "session." http://www.psychadvisor.com -

Assessing Fitness-for-Duty Employees with mental health problems can present complex issues for human resource departments, administrators, supervisors, and disability claims representatives.
