Supporting Students In Distress
Those who interact with students are in the best position to notice early indications of concern.
Early indications may include:
- Deterioration in quality of work or in physical appearance
- Disturbing content in student’s work
- Expressions of hopelessness
- More withdrawn or animated than usual
- Direct or indirect reference to suicide
- Class attendance becomes irregular
If you believe there is imminent danger of harm to a student or someone else, please call 911
