Who is informed about my counseling sessions?
Counseling is confidential. The counseling center does not disclose information to anyone without written consent of the client/student except as required by law. The fact that a student is being seen by a counselor is confidential. Confidentiality is only compromised when there is a situation of imminent danger or substantial concern with regard to self or others.
