Confidentiality is a legal obligation of HCS. Information is not released outside the HCS team without written permission from the student, except on court order or where required by law (e.g. child abuse situations) or as required in judgement to protect you or others from immediate harm. You will be supplied with the necessary information about confidentiality during your first appointment. Your counsellor will review this with you, answering any questions you may have regarding your confidentiality rights.
