Concerned about a Student?
Any member of the University of Massachusetts Boston community may come into contact with a distressed student.
Many students come to the attention of faculty or staff through:
- journal entries;
- or shifts in behavior, mood, appearances, etc.
Being aware of distress signals, methods of intervention, and sources of help for the student can help you assist the student.
If your situation is urgent but not life threatening, the Office of the Dean of Students is available to provide assistance to students, parents, staff and community members with issues ranging from health and wellness, threatening or disruptive behavior, or other safety issues.
