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

How do I report?
You can report a concern by calling 970-491-1350 or by filling out the online referral form. 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 you to leave your name. This allows us to follow up with you if some of the information is unclear or we need more information. If you believe that someone is an imminent danger to themselves or others, call 911 instead. Once you make a report, Tell Someone staff will discreetly connect the person you are concerned about with specialized help through resources across campus and the community. They may also follow up with you to ask clarifying questions, or to make sure you feel safe once action is in motion.

What happens after I report?
When a Tell Someone referral is submitted, a trained staff member reviews the referral and checks Colorado State University records and systems to develop a response. Tell Someone staff may follow up with you to gather additional information. Tell Someone staff then make a referral to the appropriate CSU resource for an outreach to provide support. We:

  • Connect students and employees who may be having a difficult time with supportive resources
  • Intervene in disruptive situations and provide guidance and support for university faculty and staff in navigating these 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. 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.
