Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) Referral
The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a campus-wide network of resources to encourage mental health, well-being and help-seeking throughout the campus community. BIT focuses on prevention, early intervention and provision of support services for individuals in the NEOMED community experiencing distress or engaging in harmful or disruptive behaviors.
The BIT referral form is a resource for anyone at NEOMED to communicate their concern about an emerging situation involving an individual faculty, staff, student or guest’s behavior which is causing concern about the safety of that individual and/or others in the university community but has not escalated to an emergency. This includes not only single incidents, but also patterns of behavior. If you think it might be a good idea to submit a BIT referral form, please do so. The BIT team encourages referrals whenever there is doubt. However, do not use the BIT referral form for situations that present an imminent risk of harm. If the situation is an emergency, call 911.
