    IV.       Structure

     

    1. We are obligated to report duty to warn cases when there is a threat to self or others, spousal abuse, child abuse, and sexual assault as per our protocol.

     

    1. There may be situations that arise that are not appropriate for our services.  In those instances we will make every effort to facilitate a referral to other available resources that will be able to help.

     

    1. All information other than duty to warn is kept confidential.  We do not report or document any identifying information or keep records of our interactions. We do collect data that reflects demographics and some general information that the Office of the Secretary of Defense has requested.

     

    1. If someone needs additional services, we recommend referrals to other resources. We are not here to replace any of the services that exist on base; we are simply bridging some of the possible gaps; this is particularly useful if and when there is reluctance in accessing those other services.  (If briefing staff that isn’t familiar with program may want to state that we are not here to evaluate staff).
