Students are often concerned about their privacy when seeking out personal counseling on campus. All information that a student shares is regarded as confidential. Records are stored separately from your general college records, and only the campus psychologist has access to them. Information is not shared with outside parties unless permission to do so is given by the student. However, if there is a serious threat of harm to yourself or someone else, it may be required by law to share information with an outside party in order to ensure your safety. If you have any questions regarding confidentiality of psychological services, please feel free to discuss them with Dr. Browner at any time.
