  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which it is required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, New Insights, LLC must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, New Insights, LLC and their clinicians will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If uncooperative, further measures without their permission will be taken that are provided by Wisconsin law in order to ensure their safety.
