All information gathered in counseling, including the fact that
a student has come to CCS, is held in strict confidence. No
information is released to anyone unless:
(a) the student requests that the information be released;
(b) CCS is court ordered to release information;
(c) an immediate danger of serious harm to someone (self or
others) requires that information be released to prevent the harm
(d) if there is any risk to children, the elderly, and the
physically or mentally handicapped.
If a student is entering law enforcement or the
military he/she should know that applications routinely ask if
you have sought counseling in the past.
Your professors, parents or guardians, friends, advisors or
others will not be notified
that you are utilizing services at CCS (unless you
ask us to do so). Counselors are prohibited from sharing any
information about the identity of our clients without the client's
permission. If you have a concern about a friend and call to ask if
he/she is seeking counseling, you will hear, "I cannot confirm or
deny whether or not your friend has or has not been seen at CCS."
We would only be able to share information with you if the person
in counseling gives us permission to do so.
