Are my conversations confidential? HUHS assures each patient that all health information is treated confidentially and protected to the fullest extent permissible by law.  Conversations with mental health clinicians, acting in their professional capacity, are privileged under the law, meaning that mental health clinicians are prohibited from disclosing what you have shared with them, even in a legal proceeding, unless you give them permission.
