Let’s Talk visits are confidential. Are there any limits to confidentiality?

Conversations with Let’s Talk counselor consultants are confidential. However, one exception is that counselors may need to share information in a situation in which safety for yourself or others is a concern.

The Let’s Talk consultants may take brief written notes of their contacts with students in the event that there is an emergency, or when a student is referred to Norris. In these situations, other Norris counseling staff may see these notes. Anonymous information is also collected about attendance so that we can keep track of the students we are serving.

Let’s Talk visits are never reported on a student’s official university record.

We don’t want anything to be a barrier to students accessing help. If you have further questions about confidentiality, we encourage you to discuss them with a Let’s Talk consultant.
