REMINDER: JSB Certifications considers the following to be an official record of a qualifying medical condition:
* Visit Summaries must include clear and definitive mention of a pre-existing or new diagnosis. ** Behavioral Health Evaluations/Recommendations are valid only on psychiatric disorders (Anxiety/PTSD) and considered to be formal letters of recommendation issued on the official letterhead of State Licensed and Certified clinicians with a Masters or Ph.D. in psychology or another area of behavioral health studies. JSB Certifications will not accept letters of recommendation from life coaches, school counselors, or other unlicensed advisors.
