What does it mean that CARE is confidential?

Confidentiality means CARE advocates will not share any information with Title IX, the police, parents, or anyone else without explicit permission. The only exceptions are instances of child abuse, elder or dependant abuse and imminent harm to self or others. This would be a discussion to express why the report must be made in those specific instances.
