What is Mandatory Reporting?
  • Generally, what is said in a private appointment is not shared outside of that appointment, it is confidential, unless you give us permission to share it.
  • However as mandatory reporters we must contact someone to help, if you tell us:
    •  You are being abused (physically and/or sexually)
    •  You are being neglected
    • You are going to hurt yourself or someone else
    • You are under 14 and having sex with someone 17 years old or older
    • You are under 16 and having sex with someone 20 years old or older
