Information discussed with the school counselor is kept confidential and your trust is always a priority. Your safety and well-being are of utmost importance and if for any reason you indicate a desire to hurt yourself, to hurt others, or if you are in danger of, or are currently being hurt by someone (including neglect), your school counselor is required to share that information with someone who can help protect you.
