We encourage all faculty and staff concerned about a student in distress to call us. We can provide consultation and suggestions for problem-solving. Please note that we cannot divulge any information about a student without a release of information signed by the student. We can be reached during business hours Monday-Friday 8am-5pm at (757) 221-3620. Be aware that there are many types of appointments available for students.
In addition, we remind faculty and staff that they are required to notify the Dean of Students when a student threatens or attempts suicide. We will take immediate action to help assure the student's safety and provide crisis-intervention services.
In order to help faculty members identify and handle students in distress, we have constructed a guide for faculty wishing to help students.
