Students of Concern

quickly escape this page

For many faculty, staff, parents, friends or peers it can be difficult to see your student, child, or friend struggle.  At times it can be a very powerless feeling to not know how to help them or offer support.  CTX has created a simple and easy format for you to intervene through the Early Alert System.  If you are concerned for a student you can complete the Early Alert Form which will be reviewed by members of the Behavioral Intervention Support Team (BIST).

If you see signs that a student is struggling please feel free to complete the early alert form or you can come by or contact the Counseling Center and have a consultation with the counselor.
