Disclosure Mandates

Risk of Harm to Self or Others

Mental health professionals are required to disclose information where there is an imminent threat of the person harming themselves or others.

Ohio Medical Professional Reporting Requirements

In Ohio, medical professionals have distinct legally-mandated reporting responsibilities. Where a medical professional knows or has reasonable cause to believe that serious physical harm resulted from an offense of violence, the medical professional is required to make a report to law enforcement.  Medical professionals must deem a patient medically stable before reporting and must communicate to the patient that the patient does not have to report and/or speak to the police. If the patient chooses not to speak to police at the time of the medical examination, the medical professional does not need to report the patient's name - only the date, general time, and general location of the experience.
