How to Report

Tell Someone

If you are concerned about safety or mental health – your own or someone else’s, please call (970) 491-1350 or complete the online referral form.

How to Report

If you believe that someone is an imminent danger to themselves or others, call 911 or aid the person in getting to a crisis support facility.

How do I report?

Please fill out the online report form. If you feel that additional information is necessary, please call 970-497-1350. The phone is staffed during regular business hours (M-F 8AM-5PM) and messages are regularly checked. While you may submit this form anonymously, we strongly encourage providing names of all parties associated with the case. This allows us to follow up to gather collaborative information and make appropriate referrals.  Once you make a report, Tell Someone staff will discreetly connect the person of concern with specialized help through resources across campus and the community. They may also follow up with the reporting party to ask clarifying questions, give recommendations for how to proceed.

What happens after I report?
When a Tell Someone report is submitted, a trained staff member reviews the referral and checks Colorado State University records and systems to develop a specific and individualized response. Tell Someone staff then make referrals to appropriate CSU resource for an outreach to provide support.


  • Connect students and employees with supportive resources
  • Intervene in disruptive situations
  • Provide guidance and support for university faculty and staff to navigate concerning situations within the academic setting
  • Assess and respond to individuals who may present a threat to themselves or others. This assessment does not replace a police response, but works in tandem with it
  • Connect with offices, individuals, and resources across campus to ensure that each situation receives a tailored response

Tell Someone makes every effort to protect your identity if you do not want your identity shared. However, we find that being able to share an identity helps promote a culture of care and decrease stigma. We maintain a strict level of care with all reports, and share information only on a need-to-know basis. Most information in a report, including the identity of the person you’re concerned about, is protected by various laws that govern medical issues, student records and personnel records.
