Navarro College promotes heath, wellness, and preventive care. The actions of a student who indicates a threat of harm to oneself is taken very seriously. Counselors in the Department of Student Guidance work diligently to make appropriate referrals, both for treatment and evaluation.
In the case of imminent threat, emergency personnel such as the Navarro College Department of Public Safety are contacted to assist in the determination of need for a mental health warrant for the protection of the student. This action may result in further consultation or referrals leading to professional evaluation and treatment.
The referred student’s instructors and emergency contact (family or other listed) may be notified about the student’s health-related absences. For more information on mental health protocol, students may review the Health and Safety section of the Navarro College Student Handbook.
