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
(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.
