Confidentiality and Other Forms

The information you share in counseling is privileged and confidential. Counselors may consult with one another as needed to assist students. A signed Consent for Release of Privileged Information form is required to disclose to a third party any information about the counseling you have received. There are exceptions to confidentiality. If you are under 18, discuss with your counselor how this may impact some aspects of confidentiality. Your counselor is required to report disclosed information to the appropriate authorities:

  • When serious and foreseeable harm to you or others is evident.
  • When release of confidential information is required by court order or requested by you.
  • When child abuse or neglect is evident or suspected.
  • When abuse, neglect or exploitation of adults who are vulnerable due to physical or mental impairment or advanced age is evident or suspected.
