Optional Health Information Disclosure

Disclosure of Private Mental Health Information

Heartland Community College is required to offer the Student Optional Disclosure of Private Mental Health Information to all newly-enrolled students.

You have the option to designate a contact person to whom the College may disclose certain private mental health information. The College will only contact this person if HCC's Student Counseling Services determines that you pose a clear danger to yourself or to others, or to protect you or another person against a clear, imminent risk of serious mental or physical injury, disease or death. You are not required to designate a contact. Should you choose to designate a contact person, it can be anyone over the age of 18 (e.g., parent, sibling, friend, etc.). You may modify your designation at any time.

Please note that the university reserves the right to contact your parent, legal guardian, spouse and/or other emergency contact as required or permitted by law.
