Concerned About A Student 

Concerns of Wellbeing

Some students thrive in the new and exciting environment of higher education. Unfortunately, sometimes this great environment of growth can be overwhelming to students. Anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and other stressors can all put an emotional burden on students. If you have a concern regarding a student, share that concern and let us help. Please send an e-mail to erbbi@uvu.edu, and list the subject as "Concerned About A Student".

Alternatively, an online report of a variety of behavioral concerns can be submitted to the office of Student Rights & Accountability. These online reports can be submitted at any time, and are monitored 24-hours a day.

Concerns of Suicide

If you are concerned that a student may be contemplating suicide, please share your concern or, better yet, encourage the student to call Student Health Services at 801-863-8876 Monday through Thursday from 8am-6pm, and Friday from 8am-5pm. The university has professionals that are ready to help individuals in crisis. You can also share your concern with us by sending an e-mail to erbbi@uvu.edu, and listing the subject as "Concerned About A Student".

If you or someone you love is in imminent danger after hours, please utilize the following resources: 

  • National hotline number – 1-800-273-TALK
  • UVU Campus Police: 801-863-5555
