It is important to note that a minor, 14 years of age or older, who has received services from Community Healthcare based on section 330.1707 of the Mental Health Code must authorize release of information regarding provision of outpatient services to their parent, guardian and/or a person acting in loco parentis.  Loco parentis means the legal responsible person or organization that takes on some of the functions and responsibilities of a parent. An exception to this authorization process can occur, when a mental health professional determines there is a compelling need for disclosure based on a substantial probability of harm to the minor or another individual, and if the minor is notified of the mental health professional’s intent to inform the minor’s parent, guardian or person in loco parentis.
