Is peer support confidential?

The Texas Health and Safety Code Chapter 784 establishes confidentiality between Peer Support members and an employee who receives services from peer support. The communication may not be disclosed in civil, criminal, or administrative proceedings. 

Confidentiality may be broken if the individual threatens to harm themselves or others. Confidentiality may also be broken if there is suspected child or elder abuse.
