Are you concerned about a student who might be at risk for suicide?
Any concerned party can complete the UO Suicide Concern Form:
The University of Oregon has an investment in the welfare and well-being of all students. In its efforts to ensure the general well-being of all students, the Division of Student Life has implemented a suicide prevention program. The program’s goal is to assess students that have engaged in suicide-related behavior in order to evaluate their level of risk and offer them professional mental health services.
The Suicide Concern Form is used to inform the Suicide Assessment Team that a student has engaged in suicide-related behavior. Such suicide-related behavior can include making suicide threats, verbally or nonverbally (e.g., through writing), as well as engaging in intentional self-injurious behavior with the intent to attempt suicide and/or to give the appearance of intending to kill him/herself.
Any concerned party can complete the Suicide Concern Form. Once the form is completed, it is sent to the Suicide Assessment Team for review and disposition. A member of the Suicide Assessment Team will contact the referring party to discuss the situation and explore options for addressing the concern about the student’s risk for suicide. In some cases, the student will be contacted by the Office of the Dean of Students and directed to contact the Counseling & Testing Center for a mandatory risk assessment. Again, the ultimate goal is to provide the student with mental health services in order to assist the student in developing more adaptive ways to cope and adjust to psychological stress and strain.
