If your child/legal dependent is 18 years of age or older, parents/legal guardians will not be notified about services they are actively using unless they sign a release of information form allowing us to share that information. If your child/legal dependent is under 18 years of age, they may request an initial consultation without parental consent, but would need written consent from a parent/guardian before engaging in any further counseling.

Circumstances Warranting Referral
Though you may be genuinely concerned about helping students, there may be times you need to refer them to other resources.
You might want to consider the following when referring a student to the Counseling Center if:
- The student’s problem is more serious than you feel comfortable handling.
- You are extremely busy or overwhelmed and are therefore unable to help.
- You have talked to the student and helped as much as you can, but they need further assistance.
- You think your personal feelings about the student will interfere with your objectivity.
- The student admits that there is a problem, but doesn’t want to talk to you about it.
- The student asks for information or assistance that you are unable to provide.
Let the student know the purpose of the referral (e.g., time constraints, conflict of interest, limited training/skill) and emphasize that the student should get help from an appropriate source. It may help the student to know that you support their desire to receive support.
Let the student know that you would like to hear how the appointment goes. Assure the student that this is entirely voluntary on their part. Ask permission to contact the student within a week and see if the referral went well.
