What is Distressed or Distressing Behavior?
Why is this important?
The single most important goal is to protect the safety and welfare of you, the student, and the campus community. By telling someone, you can potentially help prevent a distressed or distressing student from engaging in harmful or destructive behavior. You can also help a student connect with campus resources that could help him or her. There is no reliable profile for a student who is likely to be violent. Trust your instincts and consult with others if you have concerns about a student. Don't wait; seek advice early.
