Does the Baltic Mental Health Network recommend any specific practitioners?
By searching for a practitioner, the client understands that a BMHN listing does not imply a recommendation by BMHN, or endorse any specific practitioner, or opinions, or endorse any tests, products, procedures, or any other information that may be mentioned on the BMHN website, in any brochure or other text media. In addition, BMHN makes every effort to screen practitioner profiles and events for appropriate content.

What is the difference between an Individual Professional Profile and Facility Profile?
