The Role of a Caring Community

Prevention Means:

  • saying something when you see someone behaving in a way that is inconsistent with our community of trust.
  • recognizing the signs of an unhealthy relationship.
  • getting regular wellness checks to promote physical and mental health.
  • learning how to find balance in your life and creating living and working environments that are healthy and free from violence.
  • learning strategies to lower your risk for unwanted outcomes when choosing to drink alcohol.
  • seeking help if you are worried about someone or seeking help for yourself if you are having any sort of difficulty.
  • creating an environment where people feel comfortable asking for help and supported when they do.
  • avoiding use of illegal substances or medications not prescribed for you.

Everyone's Responsibilities

Be aware:

  • of your co-workers, friends, students and peers.
  • of the types of violence, warning signs and the resources available.
  • of what is a workplace violence issue.
  • of how you report a threat or concerning behaviors.
  • of how you refer an employee or student for help.
  • of your surroundings, exits and hall/office/class routines.
