  1. If you indicate that you intend to harm either yourself or another person
  2. If you disclose that a child or vulnerable adult is at risk of harm
  3. If the CPU or your notes are subpoenaed for evidence in court
  4. If you disclose that you have committed a serious crime that has not been reported.

Other than the scenarios above, the CPU may ask your permission to share information with other parties in addressing an issue or situation.
