Recognizing and Supporting Students in Distress

When a student is in distress, there are often indicators long before a situation escalates, and you may be the first to notice them. It is important that you communicate these signs of through the Referral form​

Please understand that referring not only helps support student but it also documents that the university activated appropriate protocol to address concerning behavior that may have safety implications for individuals and the campus community.

In addition to making a referral, we encourage you to have a conversation with the student to gather information, express your concern, and share supporting resources. The university has many resources available for you to consult with, including the Student Mental Health Service.

Faculty and Staff Support

We recognize that student behavior can have a ripple effect.  If you are submitting a CARE report in your role as faculty and/or staff and feel you may need additional support, please know that the School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry has a clinic to support faculty and staff mental health.   For more information click here:
