Is my visit confidential?
All contacts with CAPS Clinical Service are confidential. No client information is released to anyone outside the agency, other university offices, faculty, or parents without the clients written consent. There are limits to confidentiality. Mental health professionals are required by law to report cases of suspected child abuse. They may disclose information when it is necessary to protect a client or others from imminent danger. Information may be disclosed when required by court order. CAPS staff members also reserve the right to share information with each other for treatment and training purposes.
