Students in Distress Resources
As a faculty or staff member, you may be one of the first to be aware of a student in distress. The Students in Distress Resources folder contains an electronic version of our Mental Health and Wellbeing: Assisting Students in Distress guide, documents on sexual violence or misconduct disclosures/reports and assisting student survivors, the OnTrack Users Guide, and community emergency resources, etc. Please familiarize yourself with this information so you are confident in providing and accessing the information. The resources will be updated annually or as required.
If you want a hard copy of the Mental Health and Wellbeing: Assisting Students in Distress guide, please request one from email@example.com.
OnTrack is an online early alert system available to faculty for referring students who are struggling. Whether the student has an academic or personal issue, an OnTrack submission is a method of connecting students to internal and external services/supports.
OnTrack is NOT for crisis situations. With the permission of a student (unless they are not attending or responding), students will be contacted by a member of Student Services within 2-3 days.
