Crisis Teams - Confidentiality
What about confidentiality?
Confidentiality means that the crisis team should not tell other people personal things about you. This includes family members or carers. The only time they can tell others your details is if you agree that they can. This is called giving consent. They can only give your details to others without your consent if you or another person is at risk. For example, if you said you are going to harm yourself.
Other people may also work with the crisis team. This could include your care coordinator or GP. The crisis team may need to contact them and give them important information.
