What To Do If You Are Concerned About A Student

BIT Referrals:

If you are moderately concerned about an NMT student or an NMT community member, we encourage you to submit a report to the NMT Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT team).  

Reporting to BIT insures that a multi-disciplinary team will look into the matter and provide the most appropriate support to the student or NMT community member.

Emergency Referrals: 

When a student is in imminent danger of hurting self or others, contact Campus Police immediately at 575-835-5555 or ext. 5555.


Mental Health Crisis During Regular Business Hours:

If the mental health crisis occurs during regular NMT business hours (Mon-Fri. 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.) call the Counseling Center at ext. 6619. State that you need crisis support and provide a description of the situation that has lead to your concern. The Counseling Center will advise you of the appropriate actions to take to most effectively help the student.
