Confidentiality

Any information that you reveal to a therapist is considered "privileged communication" and that information is kept confidental. Mental health professionals are not allowed to release any information about clients unless a “Release of Information” form is signed, which permits the transfer of specific information to a specified individual. The form is valid for 90 days.

There are certain situations in which information about clients may be released with or without their permission. These situations are as follows:

  1. When children are neglected, physically abused or sexually abused, the proper authorities (e.g. police, State Division of Family Services) must be notified.
  2. In emergency situations, such as a threat of homicide or suicide, in which there is potential danger to the client or other individuals confidentiality may be broken.
