Important Information About Confidentiality
Assurance of privacy is one of the conditions that makes counseling effective. The UCC is prohibited by Indiana State Law from disclosing anything about any student (including a student’s attendance at a counseling session) who is 18 years of age or older without his or her written permission.
If you want communicate with a counselor about a student whom you referred to the UCC or whom you believe is a client, or simply want confirmation that the student is being seen at the UCC, please ask the student to sign a release of information which then allows us to share information with you. Of course, whether and to what extent information is to be released is entirely at the discretion of the student. Otherwise, we cannot confirm or deny whether the student is a UCC client.
If you are concerned about a student and are not sure how to help, please call the UCC at 574-631-7336 and a UCC staff member will consult with you about the best way to proceed.
