Concerned persons report

Does someone need your help?

Do you know someone who’s suffering, acting out or putting themselves or others in harm’s way? Do you feel that you can't give them enough emotional support or simply don't know how? It's okay. You can still help.

A concerned persons report is a 100-percent confidential way for concerned classmates, employees, family members and friends to report challenging and at-risk behaviors of peers and loved ones to Lynn’s Campus Safety and Counseling Center professionals.

Confidentiality

The Academic Life Emergency Response Team (ALERTeam) is a student assistance team composed of the dean of students, counselors, staff, faculty and a residence director.
