YST Confidentiality Guidelines

Confidentiality rules are implemented to protect our youth and families from unnecessary invasions of their privacy. The rules are also in place to prevent members from using the information for any purpose other than that for which it was intended.

For this reason, parents/guardians give written permission in the form of a signed Release of Information (see example for your region) for the team to share information necessary for coordinating services, with the understanding that their consent is voluntary, in effect for a maximum of one calendar year, and may be revoked at any time by the parent/guardian.

Youth age 14 or older may also request mental health services, alcohol and drug services, and public health services without parental permission or knowledge. In such cases, the YST would need the youth’s permission to share information, even when their parent or guardian has given permission for the YST referral.

Please note that all Mandatory Reporting laws remain in full effect during any and all aspects of the YST process. Any mandatory reporter on a YST is obligated to report concerns or indications that a minor child is being abused, neglected, or exploited.

Important Message

LBL ESD is providing modified services due to COVID-19 and the statewide school closure. Please contact 541-812-2600 for assistance. Limited staffing during the closure will make response to public inquiry difficult, and some inquiries may be delayed until programs reopen.
