School Mental Health: Limits to Confidentiality for Teachers and Students Mobile App
As teachers, there is always the chance you will be confronted with suicide threats, child abuse and/or drug/alcohol use on campus.
How does it work?
These require immediate reporting to an administrator followed up by an appropriate referral. These are mandated by state law or school policy. However, if there is immediate cause for concern, we must break confidentiality and make our report. The procedure and policies regarding limits to teacher confidentiality have not changed. But what has changed over the years of experience is our approach to student confidentiality. The School Mental Health: Limits to Confidentiality for Teachers and Students mobile app details confidentiality issues for teachers as well as students.
