Privacy and Practice Policy

 

Confidentiality

Information gathered as part of the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a client's mental health condition, will remain confidential. 

 

It is however,  important to know there are exceptions in which all clinicians are mandated (by law) to break confidentiality.  This is necessary when:

  • a person is at risk of harming themselves or others

  • client records are subpoenaed by a court of law.

  • a child is at risk of harm
