A Note About Sexual Attraction To Children And Mandatory Reporting

If you seek mental health help for having a sexual attraction to children, you are hereby notified that a mental health provider may be required to report to law enforcement under circumstances specific to that provider and the location they are in. It is best, in this situation, to ask questions of a mental health provider to better understand what these circumstances are.


These laws vary by location, and you are responsible for knowing what they are and how they affect your situation. A therapist may report you regardless if they are unaware or unclear about their legal obligations, or wish to protect their legal liability, so asking them questions is a good idea.
