As a client of the Counseling Center, you have the right to strict confidentiality and no information about your case will be released without your prior written authorization.  The right to confidentiality may be waived, in your counselor's professional opinion, if you meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Your counselor believes that you pose a serious & immediate danger to yourself or others; he/she will take protective actions.  These actions may include seeking hospitalization for you, notifying any potential victim(s), and/or notifying the police.

  • Your counselor has reason to believe that a child or vulnerable adult is being neglected or abused.  The law requires that the situation be reported to the appropriate state agency.

  • The issue of your mental health is raised in court proceedings.  In this case, your records may be ordered to be released by a judge.

  • You are under 18 years of age.  In this case, please be aware that the law provides your parents the right to examine your treatment records.  Before giving your parents any information we will discuss the matter with you, if possible, and do our best to handle any objections you may have with what we are prepared to discuss.
