Prevent Student Suicide and Promote Student Wellness
Our real-time wellness dashboard orients you to the groups where wellness challenges are rising, helps you identify their causes, and address them to reduce student distress and prevent suicide.
Use clear, straightfoward, numerical data to guide wellness policies, to evaluate your interventions, and to advocate for your students.
Students wait too long before reaching out for support. Early Alert is a Proactive Resource Navigator, checking in with each of your students, alerting them to decreases in their wellness, and suggesting support resources (including self-help resources) to address challenges long before they become a crisis.
Don't wait for your students to reach out for support. They won't, until it's too late. Early Alert provides individual, confidential check-ins to nip trouble in the bud.
A Culture of Caring
Early Alert does more than just suggest the right support resources at the right time. Early Alert sends a clear message to everyone in your school: We Care.
Weekly check-ins mean weekly acknowledgements of students' humanity, the ups and downs of life, and the fact that everyone needs support sometime. Early Alert normalizes the process of taking a moment to reflect about wellness, and acts as a weekly reminder of the importance that the entire program places on attending to individual wellness.
Higher Utilization of Support Resources
When students are facing a wellness challenge, the last thing they want to do is navigate a website listing possible support resources. The result? They wait. The problem gets worse. And worse. And worse.
Early Alert cuts through the noise by providing an instant referral, tailored to the student's needs, exactly when the student needs it. The result? Higher utilization of support resources, and early resolution of wellness challenges.
Early Alert's dashboard shows you common barriers to access - why students aren't using resources you provide. Whether the issue is cost, perceived benefit, scheduling difficulties or concerns about confidentiality, Early Alert's dashboard helps you identify and systematically address the issues that are preventing your students from using the support resources you offer.
