How to help a student when you worry

As an advisor, teacher, friend, coach, supervisor, myriad other roles, or as the parent or family member of a Brown student, your relationship may mean you are one of the first to notice something  of concern. You notice a student is behaving differently or seems distressed.  You may have questions about how you can be helpful or how best  to connect with University response resources.  Helping a Student in Distress seeks to summarize and connect you with relevant resources and information.
