Privacy and Information Sharing:
Professionals affiliated with Confidential Resources (CR) will gladly receive information from you about a person's well-being, but, due to FERPA, HIPAA, or professional ethics, some resources, licensed healthcare providers in particular, are often unable to provide reciprocal information to you regarding the student. This can be frustrating but is an essential ethical and legal safeguard for student privacy and confidentiality.
