A Note About Confidentiality
In determining which resources to access, it is important to consider the related issues of confidentiality and privacy. Those terms sound similar, but they mean somewhat different things. Confidentiality means information will generally not be shared with anyone, except in very rare cases when sharing the information would prevent serious harm to others or the reporter. Privacy means any information you provide will only be shared with a small number of people on a need-to-know basis.
Most Cabrillo employees can promise privacy, but not confidentiality, because they are legally required to share information that they learn about incidents of sexual misconduct and gender-based harassment with the Title IX Coordinator. Only confidential counselors in Student Health Services can promise true confidentiality. Cabrillo students and employees may also seek help from any of the confidential community resources listed below.
Please keep in mind, the Title IX Coordinator will treat any information recieved with the utmost discretion and sensitivity. Please feel free to contact the Title IX Coordinator to discuss the distinction between confidential and non-confidential resources and to find the appropriate resource for you. During such conversation, you are free to share as much or as little about your own experience as you feel comfortable.
