Important tips

  • A student may tell you something in “confidence” that you may feel hesitant to report. Student safety is our primary goal. Confidentiality does not apply when personal safety issues arise. This is especially true if a student mentions or hints at harm to self or to others.
  • Let the student know you will support him/her in getting help. Listen with empathy, validate student’s feelings and refer!
