  • Other general signs of stress

I think my student needs Lynx Cares. How can I help?

Parents, faculty, and staff often have the most direct contact with students and thus may be the first to notice any changes. In order to facilitate early identification of difficulties, listed below are some possible issues that may suggest that a student is in need of assistance.

  • A change in class attendance; frequent class absences
  • A drop in GPA or academic performance from the previous semester, especially for students who generally perform above average
  • Withdrawal from social interactions with peers, family, and significant others, and expressions of loneliness
  • Occurrence of a recent loss or other crisis (e.g., relationship breakup, death of a friend or family member, academic failure)
