The Behavioral Intervention Team at State Fair Community College provides coordinated support for students in distress and takes a proactive approach to address concerns about student behavior, academic progress and personal issues, including mental health concerns.
When to be Concerned
Everyone is encouraged to report concerns about students who may pose a danger to themselves or others, who may be showing signs of being in distress, or whose behavior is escalating or disruptive to others in our community. If you believe a student may pose an immediate threat to the health and safety of themselves or others, call 911 and/or Campus Security.
How the Behavioral Intervention Team Works
Once the Behavioral Intervention Team receives a Referral Form a member of the Behavioral Intervention Team will reach out to the referring party to gather more information, provide consultation and support, discuss the referral with a core group of counselors to create an action plan, and, as appropriate, create a plan to engage with the student to assess the concerns.
In most cases, a counselor on the Behavioral Intervention Team will reach out and invite the student to meet in person to review the concerns, assess and refer the student to campus and community resources, and coordinate follow-up care and services.
Submit a Referral to the Behavioral Intervention Team
To make a referral from any of our campuses, submit a Referral form to share your concerns about a student’s behavior.
