6 Ways to Communicate with Students in Crisis

Why You Need This Resource

Faculty and staff are often the first point of contact for students experiencing mental health challenges. While it may feel daunting to be in that position without having received formal training, there are 6 essential communication responses you can use to confidently communicate with students when you find yourself in that position.

While the 6 essential responses are fairly straightforward, it takes practice to use them confidently in the moment. We’ve created 3 interactive activities to help you practice these skills so you’re ready the next time a student approaches you for help.
