Tips For Reaching Out To A Student

  • Talk to the student in private when both of you have time and are not rushed.
  • Listen to thoughts and feelings in a sensitive, non-threatening way.
  • Express your concern in specific nonjudgmental terms that reflect your concern for the wellbeing of the student.
  • Let the student know that you believe a consultation with a staff member at Student Health, University Counseling Service, or Student Wellness could be helpful. If the student becomes defensive, simply restate your concerns and recommendations.
