Loffty Clinical is a self-assessment tool, it is NOT a diagnostic tool. By using the Loffty Platform, you are providing informed consent that you understand the Loffty Clinical assessment does not provide a final diagnosis and that any final diagnosis remains the responsibility of your Accredited Loffty Practitioner or any other qualified mental health professional you may be referred to. Accredited Loffty Practitioners can use the Loffty assessment to assist them to arrive at a diagnosis or they can choose not to formally diagnose but instead use the information collected through Loffty Clinical to support them in making treatment decisions.

10.4 The self-assessment information and recommendations generated by the Loffty Clinical are for decision support purposes only and should not, on their own, be construed as professional advice. Your Accredited Loffty Practitioner will use the Loffty report to support their assessment process and will review your personalised Loffty report with you so you can decide next steps together.
10.5 In the event that your Loffty report identifies suicidal ideation or potential for self-harm, the assessment will prompt you to contact a range of support services.
