  6. I understand that I will need to integrate some degree of self-care in my life.
  7. I understand that the contents of the meetings with the mentee are confidential unless there is threat of harm to self or others..

  9. I will be familiar and understand all the resources provided at Ambrose and within the community to refer to the mentee if needed. These will be provided to the mentor.
