Support people are very important. Trained support people can explain and process options with you, as well as, help you contact or navigate resources available to you. Not all support people have the same confidentiality levels. Support people will be able to keep your information confidential at differing levels. You should consider your confidentiality needs carefully.
The most confidential support person is one of Violence Intervention Project's (VIP) or Community Intervention Violence Center (CVIC) advocates. VIP and CVIC advocates have an ethical obligation to keep your information confidential. It is also important to know that these advocates cannot be subpoenaed by a court and required to disclose your information. Working with an advocate is an excellent decision.
Northland has a counselor on each campus. Northland's counselors have an ethical obligation to keep your information confidential -- they are not required to report your information. It is a safe place to process and gather information. However, it is important to know that counselors can be subpoenaed by the court system and required to disclose your information.
If you are not 18 years of age or there is danger to the community, counselors, and advocates may be required to report information but will do their best to assure that your identity is not shared.
Any person other than an advocate or counselor is limited in their ability to keep your information confidential. Police, college administrators, and some employees may be required to report your information and/or take appropriate action. As much as possible, they will try to keep your identity private.
