Confidentiality

Confidentiality and privileged communication remain rights of all participants according to state law. However, if an individual intends to take harmful, dangerous, or criminal action against another human being, or against themselves, it is the duty of Set Free leadership to warn appropriate individuals of such intentions. Suspected acts of child abuse or neglect are required to be reported. Those warned may include but are not limited to:

 

·    The person or family of the person who is likely to suffer the results of harmful behavior;
·    The family of the participant who intends to harm himself/herself or someone else;
·    Associates or friends of those threatened or making threats;
·    Law enforcement officials.

Before informing anyone who should be warned, Set Free Ministry leadership will take all possible steps to first share that intention with the participant. Every effort will be made to prevent any such breach of confidentiality.
