Athealth.com was founded in 1997 by a psychiatrist to provide mental health information and services for mental health professionals and those they serve. We serve an online community of clinicians, academicians, and students committed to meeting the diverse needs of those with mental health concerns.
When you register, subscribe to one of our newsletters, or purchase a continuing education course, athealth.com collects and stores the information you provide to us so that we can better understand and serve your professional needs. Athealth.com uses this information to:
- Measure site activity
- Advise you of new or special services and information.
- Respond to your requests.
- Direct content and educational courses to you in your areas of interest.
- Offer you the opportunity to have your name and password "remembered" using "cookie" technology so that you do not have to sign in each time you visit the site, take a continuing education course, or purchase other products.
- Keep a record of your continuing education courses, test scores, evaluations, and other data related to your courses.

Athealth.com does not sell or provide your e-mail address or customer information to outside parties, except as follows.
In the event that athealth.com or substantially all of its assets were to be acquired by another company, customer information, including your e-mail address, would be one of the transferred assets.
- If you register for an online continuing education course through our website, and the course you register for is paid for by an entity other than yourself (for example, by your employer), we provide that entity with your name and professional data, course name and registration/completion dates, and test score so that payment for the course can be made.
- If you register for an online continuing education course through our website and use a discount code or organizational code provided by your employer, organization, or other entity, we provide the employer, organization, or other entity with your name and professional data, course name, and registration/completion dates so that these entities can evaluate the success of the discount offer.
- Athealth.com does share aggregate information about its users with other parties. Aggregate information is information that describes the habits, usage patterns, and/or demographics of users as a group but does not include the identity or e-mail address of a particular user. For example, a potential sponsor of Friday's Progress Notes may want to know how many practitioners from California subscribe to the newsletter, and we do provide this kind of aggregate information to outside parties.
