As you enter therapy, a client record or file is begun (separate from any university record) which includes information about your history, treatment goals, progress and any testing results or correspondence which may occur.
No information about you is released from the Counseling Center unless you provide written consent.
However, the Center may release information without your consent if the law requires that we do so. This might occur:
- Where a court order is received
- If there is an emergency or a situation which threatens your life or the life of another
- Or if evidence suggests endangerment to a minor or an elderly adult.
