A good friend of Christian's scheduled an appointment with me today and expressed concern about Christian. He has not been getting much sleep, has been stressed about coursework, and (most importantly) has described thoughts of suicide. An an instructor, I've observed that Christian is extrememly tired and seems solemn at times. He does attend class and completes homework.

|Klapperich, Leah M|Egner, Mikayla A |1/24/2018||Academic, Threat to self, grief|
Mikayla lost her best friend to suicide last summer. She shared that she was still grieving deeply and sometimes has her own suicidal thoughts. Lately she has not answered email and attendance is sporadic. She told me she is seeing a counselor. I haven't heard recently if she is continuing.
|Hilvo, Wendy A|Deida, Selena M |8/24/2018||Behavior, Concerning Statements made by student to myself and other financial aid staff|
On Friday afternoon, August 24th, Selena came in the financial aid office to talk to Ellen Eickhoff, and became loud and agitated enough that another staff member heard the raised voices, and walked across the hall to step in and ask if everything was okay. After about 2 minutes of normal volume, Selena again became loud, and two different staff members both told me they were concerned about the situation. I walked in, observed Selena crying and yelling at Ellen, so I brought Selena over to talk to me in my office. I gave her a bottle of cold water and a box of tissues and let her compose herself for a couple of minutes.
Selena told me she was bipolar and off her meds, and that everything was "setting her off". She was crying and upset about not having enough money (she will, but needs to follow up with providing some information to the financial aid office). She said she was upset that some girls in the EXCEL program "were being mean to her", her father was texting her and calling her while in my office, and it was visibly making her upset. She was crying and saying she would not return to orientation that afternoon. At one point, she picked up a phone call from her father, and was angrily denying that her boyfriend hit her. She told me she was in the ER earlier this week.
I realized Selena needed more help than I could offer, I stepped out of my office and let my co-worker know to call for assistance.
While I sat with and talked to Selena, another staff member called Robyn Williams, and two representatives from admissions came over to walk Selena to Robyn's office. Bryan Brown was also called to follow them in case Selena got more agitated.
Please let me know if you need anything else.
|Garvey, Sarah L|Lopez, John C |10/22/2018||Academic, Behavior|
John is currently failing my CHE 101 course, I emailed him about his options last week and never heard back. John ususally attends CHE 101 lecture but didn't come to classs yesterday or the discussion today. I had planned on talking to him after class both times but he was not present. I spoke to his advisor, Diana Johnson, today about his progress and she indicated that she was going to talk to him after her class on Monday but he didn't show up for that (and he normally does). I am concerned about the sudden attendance issues and the fact that he is failing my course (with no possibility of passing) and I would like to have communication with him about what's in his best interest.
|Smith, Joyce A|Petrick, Raina J |11/15/2018||Academic, Behavior, Hygiene|
Behavior/Academic concerns. Came to see me as a follow-up appt. to grades (teetering/falling below 3.0 requirement), classes, clinical (RTC) requirements, touch base kind of a thing. The 1st time I saw the student she was coherent and seemed excited and happy w/school, etc. We talked about courses (Physics and Healthcare informatics) she was struggling in. I gave her suggestions on how to bring up her grade (tutoring, talking with instructors, etc.) Then 2nd time, grades were still slipping, but she stated she was working on it but she was having issues w/home life. Since her Grandpa died, her family has been arguing, her parents were thinking about splitting up, and she was sad. I talked to her about going to see Robin in counseling center. She woudl be able to work w/her on some of the ways she could cope. She also stated she was having issues w/tests (and shared she used to have accomodations in high school) so I suggested going and working with Lisa Olig - she said she did that already. This last time I met w/her (15th of Nov.) she seemed "unkept", hair was very dirty, face was peppered w/pimples (more so than I remembered before), glasses were kind of hanging on her face (and VERY dirty). I didn't smell any oders at this time. She was kind of mumbling and all her words meshed together (hard to understand her) - I do not believe it was alcohol/drug related but seemed more heavily medicated and unfocused. She stated she was seeing Robin and she also was going to see her instructor for Healthcare informations right after seeing me. She mentioned (out of the blue - not related to our academic conversation) several things:
1. lies to her mother/parents about her grades. She said she didn't like doing it. She cannot get motivated enough to do anything other than playing WEBKINS in the library.
2. she was lying to her parents about her friend (she said "you know I am BI, right?) and she couldn't talk w/her mom about it because her mom doesn't like her partner. She then continued to talk about how they cannot find a place for sex "cuz she cannot take her home, they cannot go to her place due to family issues and they cannot do it here"...
My response to her was relationships w/parents and significant others are hard. Lies do not help the situation and that she was an adult now, she needed to come clean and face their reactions and deal with it or it will only get worse.
I was approached the day after (Friday) by her Healthcare Informatics instructor with the same concerns as above. Mumbling, not focused and not wanting to do her course work because of everything that was going on in her life. She shared she didn't feel Raina was going to be able to pull out a passing grade if she didn't do well on the 2 tests remaining as well as she wasn't completing her assignments now...where she was before.
Please, bit team, look after this student if you can! I do not think we are at a "self harm" case, but I do think she needs assistance! Thank you! Joyce Smith
|Lakin, Lacey M|Mejia, Kristine M |3/7/2019||Mental Stability/Depression|
Kristine came my office today at my request to discuss her participation in the America Reads Program. Her coordinating Principal said Kristine was having issues with Attendance. I checked her class attendance in PC and noticed that was spotty as well. When I asked her to elaborate on the situation, she stated she recently had a good friend who had died by suicide. She said she was contemplating leaving school and had talked to her advisor. I asked if she had ever spoken to Counseling Services and she said she had in the past but hadn't for a while. I called Robynn who was available and asked if Kristine would be willing to go see her. Kristine agreed and I walked her over to Robynn's office. Along the walk I asked Kristine if she had a safe place to go when she left Marian and she said her Mother had recently lost her house and she wasn't sure she had a room for her. She stated she is a Psych Major and knows she is clinically depressed and should seek professional assistance. I complimented her on her self awarness and told her I was very proud of her for working this out. I left her with Robynn and told her I was hoping the best for her.
|McCarthy, Corine|Mallmann, Kylie N |5/3/2019||Academic, Behavior, Interpersonal, Threat to others|
One of my student tutors explained the situation concerning Kylie's participation during tutoring and group study sessions. During study sessions, Kylie is very disruptive, she has yelled at other students, and she has made inappropriate and potentially threatening comments towards other students. Additionally, she places blame on other students when she gets problems or lab results incorrect. During tutoring, she has been difficult and has made in concerning comments; for example before she submitted the answer to a problem she said, to the tutor "this better be right or it's your fault." After submitting, the online worksheet indicated the problem was correct, and she made the comment, the tutor "you're lucky." The students who have participated in the group study have made their concerns clear to my tutor and all students involved feel uncomfortable when Kylie is in the group.
|Hilvo, Wendy A|Leonard, Antonio L |6/28/2019||Behavior, Threat to self|
Antonio is currently not eligible for financial aid for Fall 2019, unless he submits a compelling appeal with supporting documentation, which is approved. One of the items he submitted in his appeal paperwork to me today was an essay dated Dec. 2018, which had very dark references including statements: "i was the odd link in the chain of society... I never felt loved.... I never felt wanted by anyone. I'm fucked up in the head.... i would have confromed to depression or even killed myself. Whenever i'm by myself i would just sit and think about how worthless I really am and how i won't be shit....At this point I'm too far gone to get help. " He did submit another essay which was slightly better, but still had several statements of concern. After I read the essays he submitted, I immediately contacted my supervisor, Jason Harmon and let him read the materials, and then submitted this BIT form. I am concerned for Antonio's mental stability.
|Hilvo, Wendy A|Erickson, Elizabeth A |7/1/2019||Behavior, Interpersonal, Reported homelessness|
Elizabeth has been in the financial aid office more than 4 times in the past 2 months, and has exhibited extremely aggressive behaviors on each occasion. She has disclosed that several of her loved ones have committed suicide and reported she has custody of her granddaughter. In her meeting today, she disclosed she was living in her car and homeless, which is why she has not been able to access her emails from the financial aid office. She is $1,000 in arrears in her balance owed to the school, and is very angry about nearly all her interactions on campus in different offices. I am concerned for her well-being and the safety of her grandchild, if they are living in her car.

|Luedtke, Melissa J|Johnson, Sydney R |9/9/2019||Behavior, Threat to self|
Rae was having roommmate/courtyard concerns and feeling like all of the girls were having a house meeting without her. She was taking it very personally and was in complete tears. She was called in to meet with the hall director which she was very worried about as she thought she was getting in touble.
She shared with me that she had tried to commit suicide just prior to coming to college, that she has a friend that also tried to commit suicide with a car but ended up crashing and killing another driver - this friend is now in the hospital. She said she has epilepsy and that she was formerly in foster care but people don't believe her. She also shared that she has PTSD and OCD, she was raped during homecoming in high school and that her mother involved her in sex trafficking.
We got her an immediate appointment with Robyn Williams (she had already talked to her during Summer Bridge) and discussed making some regular appointments. She has stopped into our office everyday and seems to be doing better but clearly there are alot of underlying concerns.
|Strupp, Kerry A|Bonno, Danielle K |9/18/2019||Academic, Threat to self|
I was checking on Danielle's attendance and she had not been in class so I called her. When I spoke with Danielle she reported she had just been released from the hospital. After speaking with her for a little bit she said she had attempted suicide on her own property. I asked her if she would come in to see Sr. Deb and I. She said she would. When she didn't have transportation Sr. Deb and I went to see her at her home. We spent the afternoon with her to make sure she was feeling safe and to help her priortize a care plan. Danielle asked if I would contact her instructors so I did send an email with the Doctor's note and let them know Danielle would be contacting them directly regarding her missed work and obligations.
Danielle agreed to the following: to see Sr. Deb Walter on a regular basis, stop in the Working Families Grant Office once a week to check in with us, contact her instructors to create a plan to get caught up with her academics, follow through with the Therapist appointment scheduled from her visit in the hospital, and follow up with her appointment in Madison regarding her neurological concerns.
We feel like we have a good care plan in case for Danielle but felt we should report the situation to the BIT Team.
