How do I recognize a student who may be struggling with substance use?Any sudden change in student performance could indicate a drug or alcohol issue or another mental health concern. If you notice a student suddenly withdrawing from class discussion, participating less in class, and/or missing class, discuss your concern(s) with the student. You can refer them to Health Education or Counseling Services for further assistance.
How can I encourage students to make healthy choices within the classroom?Encourage students to attend alcohol-free events on campus and within the community. Particularly at the end of the week, remind students to engage in safe partying behaviors and use a designated driver if they plan to drink over the weekend.
How do I refer a student?Please have the student contact Health Education to schedule an appointment. If the problem requires more immediate attention, on-call/crisis appointments are available through Counseling Services.
