Behavioral Intervention Team
The Mission of the Touro University Nevada (TUN) Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is to foster a safe and healthy campus community by offering care, prevention and early intervention for an individual whose behavior is disruptive or concerning.
When to submit a report
Is someone you know…
- Experiencing a decline in work or academic performance?
- Demonstrating disruptive or disturbing behavior?
- Showing dramatic changes in appearance, behavior or weight?
- Having problems at home, with classes, or work?
- Making disturbing comments in conversation, email, letters, social media postings or papers?
- Sad, anxious or experiencing dramatic mood shifts?
- Abusing alcohol or drugs?
- Isolating themselves socially?
- Acting paranoid or suspicious?
- Frequently angry or easily frustrated?
- Struggling with health problems?
These behaviors, especially when more than one is present, may be signs that a student, faculty member, or staff member is in distress.
How to submit a report
If there is an imminent threat to anyone’s personal safety or if there is an emergency in progress, please call 911 (ask for Henderson). Then contact TUN security (from any internal phone, ext 007 or call 702-358-6701) immediately so responders can be directed to the campus location.
