- Physically or verbally aggressive
- Uncontrollable disruptive behavior
- The situation feels dangerous to you
- The student reports they are in immediate physical danger, including self-inflicted injuries
In these situations, you need help immediately. Remain with the student, unless you feel your own safety is at risk. Contact MIT Police by dialing 100 on a campus phone, or 617-253-1212 on any other phone.
If you learn that a student attempted suicide while at MIT or recently before attending MIT, or if you learn that they have a stated plan or intention to die by suicide, you must take steps to assist them in obtaining clinical care through Student Mental Health and Counseling Services. You can make this connection directly or with assistance from other helping resources like Student Support Services, the Office of Graduate Education, or the CARE Team.
