How confidential are WorkLife Office consultations?

The staff of the WorkLife Office understand that you may bring concerns of a sensitive nature to our attention – regarding your work environment, career transitions or personal life. We understand the importance of confidentiality, and are bound by professional ethics and privacy legislation to protect your privacy and respect confidential information. If it is determined that your concerns would benefit from therapeutic intervention, we will refer you to the appropriate resource. Limitations to confidentiality pertain to instances of Title IX and MSU’s Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct policy violations, and apprehensions of danger to oneself or others, all of which may require the mandatory reporting of our staff; you will be advised if the staff member determines this is relevant in your situation.
