Faculty and staff are often the first to recognize changes in a student's behavior. When you notice a change and sensitively ask a student if they are okay, students feel that you care and that they matter. The understanding and support you provide is extremely powerful and therapeutic. If you find that a student's needs seem more serious than you are comfortable addressing on your own, we encourage you to reach out to us in the Counseling Center for consultation and/or make the student aware that there are counseling services available to them free of charge.
If you are unsure about the seriousness of your student's symptoms or situation, we encourage you to contact any of the following resources:
