When to Make a Report

RED FLAGS

If you witness someone exhibiting any of the following behaviors, this is a red flag that the individual may be experiencing a crisis and is in need of assistance.  A BIT/CARE report should be submitted on the individual.  Please click here to submit a BIT/CARE report.

Is someone you know:

  • experiencing a decline in work or academic performance?
  • demonstrating disruptive or disturbing behavior?
  • showing dramatic changes in appearance, behavior, or weight?
  • having problems at home, with classes, or at work?
  • making disturbing comments in conversation, email, letters, social media posting or papers?
  • sad, anxious, or experiencing dramatic mood shifts?
  • abusing alcohol or drugs?
  • isolating themselves socially?
  • acting paranoid or suspicious?
  • frequently angry or easily frustrated?
  • struggling with health problems?

These behaviors, especially when more than one are present, may be signs that a student, faculty member, or staff member is in distress.

There are many resources available at AVC to help, and your report to AVC BIT/CARE  can make a difference.
