Is It Confidential?

YES! Teen Clinic services are confidential. The only people that will know you use Teen Clinic are the health care providers.
You will have a chart at the Teen Clinic that is available only to Teen Clinic staff, who are responsible for your care.
One exception to the confidentiality policy:
When an individual is at risk of harm or abuse by themselves or someone else and requires protection. At the same time a social worker would become involved.

Safety Rules 

Most students already know safety rules to keep safe. 
Here are a few reminders and tips:

  • Don't talk to, take anything from or go anywhere with strangers.    
  • If you are approached or followed by a stranger, trust your instincts and seek help immediately.  Leave the situation, attract attention by yelling.
  • When seeking help, always go to a trusted adult – teacher, coach, police officer, other parent, or older siblings.
  • Use the buddy system, avoid walking anywhere alone.
  • Report any suspicious activity to your local school and police department.
