At Dean College, our student's safety is always our number one concern.

A student may be in crisis if he or she is exhibiting any of the following:

  • Suicidal behavior, attempts and/or explicit statements
  • Extreme anxiety resulting in panic reactions
  • Severe obsessive thinking
  • Inability to communicate (garbled or slurred speech, disjointed thoughts)
  • Confusion, disorientation, hallucinations or delusions
  • Highly disruptive behavior (hostility, aggression, violence)

Also be aware of the potential for violence, particularly if you notice:

  • Alcohol or drug intoxication
  • Homicidal threats (written or verbal) or attempted assault
  • Paranoia, agitation, hostility, aggression
  • Recent acts of violence or property damage
  • Destruction of property or other criminal acts

If you believe a student may be in imminent danger, a harm to self or others, call Campus Safety at 508-541-1888 or 911. Or, call Counseling Services at 508-541-1838 for help in assessing the situation.
