Confidentiality, Consultation and Referrals
The student’s participation in individual or group counseling is treated with complete confidentiality. Information regarding the student is not released to anyone without the student’s written permission. The only exception to this would be in the case when such disclosure is necessary to protect a student or someone else from imminent danger. Counseling records do not become part of academic or administrative records.
Counseling Services encourages dialogue and questions involving mental health issues. Staff members are available to discuss issues as well as offer resources. Please feel free to contribute to the Counseling Services information base as well. Everyone benefits from shared information and experience.
Counseling Services can help make the appropriate referrals in order to assist students in better meeting their needs.
