Minors and consent/ client portal
Answered

Is there a way to get both parent consent and emails under one minors client portal? Do you always have to make separate client portals for parents when treating a minor just to get consents? Please clarify. I am trying to figure out how to get my teenage clients to sign their own intake forms(which they would need their own client portal for), while also getting both parent consent and sending one parent the scheduling remainder. Is there any way to have parents and minor clients all under one client portal??

    Hi Bridgett, I'd be happy to help with your question. At this time, each minor client can have one Guardian assigned - if you need to get consents signed for multiple parents, you can create the additional parents as Clients to share paperwork with them. We're actively working on updates that will make family access to the Client Portal easier, and look forward to releasing these enhancements to SimplePractice soon.
