Confidentiality, Wellness and Safety

    • Counselors will be able to protect the privacy of students in their work spaces. However, counselors don’t have control over who may be present in the student’s work environment that may be able to hear confidential information.

    • Reasons for counselors to break confidentiality to be able to consult with others would be:

      • You want to harm  yourself

      • You want to harm someone else

      • Someone is harming you

    • Counselors are mandated to report suspected child abuse

    • Our priority is to keep our students SAFE.
