As Licensed mental health professionals, we are ethically bound to keep the information discussed in your therapy sessions confidential. In fact, in order for us to tell outside parties anything, you must sign a form specifically giving us permission to communicate with them.
The only exceptions to this confidentiality are:
if, in the judgment, there is a evidence of substantial risk that the student will do physical harm to themselves
if, in the counselor's judgment, there is evidence of substantial risk that the student will do physical harm to someone else
if information is shared with a counselor indicating that a child or dependent adult is being abused or harmed see (insert link to Child Abuse Reporting Policy Feb. 2016)
if there is a disclosure of sexual assualt, there is a minimum of at least an annonymous report that must be made - see Title IX / Misconduct Contact poicy to outline the requirements and procedures in this case.
if ordered to do so by a judge as part of judicial proceedings
