Is it ok for your parents to go and have a meeting with your psychiatrist without you knowing about it or being present at the meeting? I'm just wondering if that's considered "appropriate".

Legally, it depends on your age. If you are considered an adult (I'm not sure what that age is, maybe 18) it's a breach of confidentiality. Whatever your age, I generally think it's a lousy idea. Maybe your psych had a compelling reason to do this but you'll never know unless you ask.

When people call my psychiatrist, she'll listen to what they say, but cannot even respond that I am her patient. However, she always tells me that "so and so called" and this is what they said, so she's not going behind my back.
Also, in order for my parents to meet with my shrink, I had to sign a release. Again, I could find out what was said at the meeting.

My policy is to be honest with my adult patients when others call about them, even with consent. With children, as someone else pointed out, the appropriateness guidelines are based on the child's age.
