Is everything that I tell you confidential?
State of Michigan privacy laws and our codes of ethics dictate that no client information
will be released on or off campus without written consent of the student. This means
that we will not tell anyone, including friend, parents, and professors, that you
are involved in therapy or the content of your session, unless you sign a release
form clearly stating what we can disclose. There are some exceptions in the laws
including situations involving harm to self or others, child abuse issues and court
orders. This will be explained to you in detail through the Informed Consent form.
If you have questions, be sure to ask your counselor.
