Confidentiality matters to you and to us.
We value your privacy. What you reveal in counseling during your sessions with your counselor at Wingate University stays confidential. But there are a few, crucial exceptions. Information you share will not be released without your permission, except:
- In your counselor’s opinion, you present direct and foreseeable harm to yourself or others.
- We are ordered by a court of law to release information.
- You disclose actual or possible child abuse/neglect or elder abuse/neglect.
Further exceptions may apply if:
- You are 17 years old or younger.
Don’t be shy. Ask your counselor about confidentiality. It will set your mind at ease.
