Any member of the Salem State community may encounter a student who is experiencing distress or serious problems. Students may look to you for advice in a crisis, or share personal information that raises your concern. Sometimes, you may observe behavior that concerns you, although the student may appear unconcerned. Consultation is available to you through counseling and health services whenever you are unsure about how to handle a situation like this. We have psychologists and licensed mental health counselors that are experienced with these issues, and knowledgeable about the resources and procedures at Salem State.
Call us at 978.542.6413 during business hours, and identify yourself as a faculty or staff member looking for consultation with a student issue. If the issue is urgent, state this when you call, so we can get you the help you need. For more information on how to recognize, respond, refer, and report a student, view our faculty resources.
