Here to Help

The well-being of our Bobcat community is of paramount concern for Texas State. We are all Here to Help. As individual members of this community, we are often the first to recognize when a student is struggling. This site and initiative provides a way for faculty, staff, students or others to report concerning student behavior that may adversely impact a student or our university community. The report allows the university to take a proactive approach and surround the student with resources or other interventions. As a member of the Bobcat community, if you observe any concerning behavior, you may report the behavior using the online report form or contact the Dean of Students Office at 512.245.2124.

This system is not monitored outside of working hours and should not be used for emergencies. If you are experiencing an emergency that requires medical, psychological or police services, call 911.

The university takes an individualized, holistic approach to assessing submissions and determining an appropriate course of action or referral based on the information provided in the submission. Whether a student is experiencing an academic setback, a personal crisis or challenge, or engaging in disruptive behavior to the university's educational mission, faculty, staff and students can report here. Students may also use this site to make a self-report, especially if they are unsure of where or how to seek help.

Even when there is no threat to harm, it is recommended to involve others to discuss concerning behavior.
