Behavioral Response Team
Kennesaw State University seeks to foster a proactive climate of care that can only be achieved through cooperative input from the entire community. To that end, KSU has created a Behavioral Response Team (BRT) that takes a planned approach to identifying and assisting individuals who are distressed and/or exhibiting abnormal, threatening, or dangerous behavior. Through early identification, the team can connect individuals of concern with the resources they need to succeed and hopefully prevent crises. The BRT is a multidisciplinary team that meets regularly to assess and manage concerns that have been brought to the attention of the team.
Below is the online reporting “Red Flag” link that anyone can use to share information about a person of concern with the BRT. The more information that is provided the better chance the BRT will have to successfully assist that individual. Specifically, please try and describe in detail observed behaviors and statements that generated the concern. Such behaviors are often referred to as “red flags” because they may indicate a larger or growing issue with which that person may be struggling.
NOTE: If this is an emergency and there is an immediate threat call the KSU Police at 470-578-6666. Submissions through the reporting form are not constantly monitored; therefore, the reporting form is never to be used for emergency response.Red Flag Reporting
