Patient Privacy


The purpose of this policy and procedure is to implement a uniform and culturally appropriate approach to protecting the privacy and confidential information of all patients/clients of TeeJuh Behavioral Health & Counseling Services.


TeeJuh Behavioral Health & Counseling Services gives confidential, anonymous assistance to those in crisis, or those calling on behalf of a victim. While providing this service, advocates may ask for non-personally identifiable information, such as:

  • Type of caller.
  • Organization name, if referred.
  • Gender.
  • Race.
  • Age.
  • City, town or village.
  • State.
  • ZIP code.
  • How caller heard about the service.

Personally identifiable information

Both the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) prohibit sharing personally identifiable information about victims without informed, written, and reasonably time-limited consent. TeeJuh is further prohibited from sharing personally identifiable information to comply with federal, tribal, or state reporting, evaluation, or data collection requirements.

As outlined on this page, both the Violence Against Women Act and the Family Violence Prevention Services Act permit limited sharing of personally identifiable information when mandated by state law or valid court order.

Legal disclosure

We may access and/or disclose personally identifying information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • Conform to the edicts of the law or,
  • Comply with legal process served on TeeJuh.

TeeJuh staff and advocates are located in Dot Lake Village, and as such, may not be trained or fully knowledgeable about the laws of your particular state. Therefore, other state laws may apply to our communications with you. These laws may not protect your communications or privacy to the same degree or in the same manner as the laws of the state you’re calling from.

Additionally, the Violence Against Women Act and the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act permit limited sharing when mandated by state law or valid court order. However, even in this situation, TeeJuh is required to protect your information as much as possible while still complying with mandates or valid court orders.

Mandatory reporting

TeeJuh staff and advocates are considered mandatory reporters. In situations regarding the welfare of a minor, such as child abuse or neglect, any personally identifying information that is provided to an advocate will be shared to the extent required by mandatory reporting. Only information necessary to comply with mandatory reporting requirements will be shared with those whom it is required to be shared.

Software and application providers (third-party)

Our operation will undertake an annual review of any third party privacy policies affecting TeeJuh services. TeeJuh is not responsible for changes or updates made outside of the review period.

Direct connection

As part of utilizing our services at TeeJuh, an advocate may provide callers with what is known as a direct connection to our service provider. TeeJuh does not share any personally identifiable information with our service provider unless by authorized referral, and after detailed information has been obtained by the caller through TeeJuh’s registration/demographic form for submission to our service-provider.

Notification of Policy Changes

We reserve the right to change, modify or add to our privacy policy, thereby protecting the ethical, privacy, and confidentiality standards which are required of TeeJuh as a helpline under both Federal Law and grant compliance requirements. Notification of any changes to the TeeJuh privacy policy will be posted to an appropriate location to
adequately inform users of these revisions. We encourage users to review it frequently.

An advocate supports or promotes the interests of a patient. Advocates may:

  • Help patients to be heard.

  • Consider patients’ wishes in decision making.

The Violence Against Women Act is a federal law (Title IV of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, H.R.3355) passed in 1994 and reauthorized in 2000, 2005, and 2013. The act aids access to services for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The act also established the Office of Violence Against Women within the Department of Justice.

The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act is a United States law first authorized as part of the Child Abuse Amendments of 1984 (PL 98-475). The act provides federal funding to help victims of domestic violence and their dependent children by:

  • Providing shelter and related help.
  • Offering violence prevention programs.
  • Improving how service agencies work together in communities.
