What does ‘confidential care’ mean?
□ This means that we will not tell anyone anything you tell us without your permission, including your parents and the school.
□ NY State law keeps teens’ reproductive health, mental health and drug or alcohol use confidential. The only exception to this is if you are in serious danger or being hurt.
How to sign up:
□ If you want to sign up for all of our medical services, your parent/guardian signs a consent form once for the whole time you are in school.
□ Remember, once they sign the form the rest of your health care is private!
□ You can sign up yourself for reproductive health care, some mental health care and treatment for drug or alcohol use.
