The Counseling Center maintains an electronic record of the information you provide and the services we provide to you. All records at the IUP counseling center are confidential except under the following conditions:

  1. We reserve the right to seek supervision and/or professional consultation, within the Counseling Center, to aid us in our work with you.
  2. If we believe you pose a life-threatening risk to yourself or others, we may need to notify responsible individuals for your protection.
  3. If you are under 18 years of age and a victim of child abuse, we are required to report relevant information to child protective services.
  4. Information may be required to be disclosed as a result of a court order in connection with judicial proceedings.
  5. If there is reason to suspect, on the basis of therapist's professional judgment, that a child is being or has been abused, the therapist is required to report this suspicion to the authority or government agency vested to conduct child-abuse investigations. A therapist working at the Counseling Center is required to make such reports even if they do not see the child in any professional capacity.

In all other situations, your records may be released only upon your written request to appropriate individuals or agencies.

If you have any questions, please contact the Counseling Center and ask to speak with the faculty member on call.
