Conversations with MindFull Mentors and other staff members are strictly confidential. This means that they will not tell anybody else unless they feel you or somebody else is at risk. They will then need to tell a trusted adult, but they will always try to let you know before they do this.
Anyone who joins MindFull has to agree to this confidentiality statement because your safety, both offline and online, is extremely important. By telling an adult, mentors and staff members are protecting you and trying to get you the help you need. If, during a mentoring session, MindFull Mentors are worried about you, they will remind you that you have agreed to this confidentiality statement.

What do we mean by "at risk"?
All MindFull Mentors are carefully trained to understand what they can and cannot keep to themselves. They will speak to a trusted adult if they believe that you are hurting yourself (e.g. self-harm), or being hurt by somebody else (e.g. not being looked after properly). Please read Safeguarding to find out more.
What if I do not agree with the Confidentiality Statement?
If you do not agree with the Confidentiality Statement, then you cannot continue to use this site and you will not be able to register. You may like to seek support from Samaritans or Childline instead.
