Confidential Resources

Providers of confidential services may not share your information without your express consent, unless there is an imminent danger to you or others or as required by law. Providers are granted the privilege of confidentiality under Ohio law due to the nature of their position.

Please note, the provider must be acting in their counseling role in order to exercise complete confidentiality. For example, telling your Human Services professor, who also happens to be a licensed counselor, about a sexual assault does not grant you confidentiality. The professor must report this to the Title IX Coordinator, and the Title IX Coordinator will contact you about the information. (See FAQs for more information on confidentiality.)
