Students, staff, faculty, and parents are encouraged to contact the Behavioral Consultation Team if they have strong concerns about the behavior or actions of a University of Minnesota student. If you think a student might cause harm to self or others, we welcome you to share your concerns by making a referral or calling 612-626-3030. Your referral will be reviewed by a Care Manager.
The University of Minnesota’s Behavioral Consultation Team (BCT) is a team of staff from several departments across the University with administrative, psychological, academic and legal expertise. The team operates within FERPA/HIPAA requirements. Its goal is to provide a coordinated response to situations arising from students who may represent a threat of harm to themselves or others.
Please note: The BCT is NOT a crisis line. We will respond to calls/referrals as quickly as possible but if the situation is an emergency, please call 911.
In cases of less clear suggestions of potential harm, we recommend you first consult with:
- Student Counseling Services: (612) 624-3323
- Urgent Counselor at the Mental Health Clinic at Boynton Health Service: (612) 625-8475
- International Student and Scholar Services (for international students): (612) 626-7100
