Case Study 2

You work as a youth worker in a residential center. Your client George (aged 18) has mental health and substance addiction issues. You have formed a good working relationship with George, and he has been very honest with you. Over the last few weeks, you notice that George seems increasingly paranoid towards both staff and other clients of the residential center. Whenever George interacts with them, he accuses them of persecuting him and withdraws into his room. In a meeting, George discloses to you that he has plans to take revenge on your colleagues and other clients of the center. When you explore this further, George discloses that he has not been taking his medications and he has been hearing strong voices all the time. He asks you to keep the information confidential. As a case worker, what ethical issue/s does this scenario present and how would you address it/them?
