Very occasionally a student may exhibit or refer to disturbing behaviour or thoughts which lead you to believe they may be at risk of harm to themselves or others and that there is need for urgent intervention. You may be concerned because the student:
is expressing thoughts of serious self-harm or suicide
is violent, or threatening violence to people or property
seems very disorientated and out of touch with reality, including having hallucinations, hearing voices or expressing paranoid or irrational beliefs
If you're concerned that a student is at risk, please report your concern without delay, as well as encourage the student to seek help themselves. You should also let your senior tutor know.
