Description

Under current law, when a complaint against a mental health
professional is dismissed, information contained in the records of the
board that licenses, registers, or certifies the mental health professional
(board) is exempt from the disclosure requirements of the state's open
records law. The bill allows a mental health professional who is a

respondent to a dismissed complaint (respondent) to access information
in the files of the board and in the files of the division of professions and
occupations in the department of regulatory agencies (division). Before
allowing the access, the board and the division shall redact from the
information the names of the respondent's clients or other recipients of
service and any other information that would identify an individual
person, including the complainant or a witness.
