Exceptions to Confidentiality

  • Suspicion of abuse or neglect to a minor child, elderly individual, or mentally impaired individual.
  • If it is believed that a client will harm himself/herself or someone else, licensed professionals are obligated to contact the appropriate law enforcement and/or medical officials.
  • If the clinical record is subpoena by a court of law.

This list is not exhaustive but includes common examples of exceptions to patient/clinician confidentiality. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact: (214)693-7382.
