  • Great blog! Super-important topic. There seem to be many facets to the complex issue of disclosure ethics for helping professionals, maybe especially for chaplains, who of all helping professionals, may have the heaviest disclosure-ethics Cross/Crescent/Star of David to bear. I am happy to report that in my own 30 clinical years as a Navy psychiatrist, I hospitalized more than a few service members for serious suicide risk who had each come to the hospital hand-in-hand with their chaplain -- once the suicidal service member realized the chaplain would be glued to their side until they sought medical help of their own accord. And I know of no deaths that can be traced directly to nondisclosure by a chaplain, though I'd like to hear if anyone else knows of such a case. Thanks for writing the blog!
