Moderate-Risk Behaviors

Moderate-Risk behaviors are not usually life-threatening, but may be a sign that an individual's coping skills are being challenged. Examples of moderate-risk behaviors include:

  • Withdrawal from friends or daily activities
  • Irritability with others or acting out in anger
  • Increased isolation from friends or co-workers
  • Erratic behavior
  • Disruptive classroom or workplace behavior
  • Indirect threats to self or others
  • Comments about weapons
  • Serious emotional distress
  • Expressing hopelessness or helplessness
  • Disturbing content in academic work
  • Indications of alcohol or drug use interfering with academic or social performance

What to do: Report through ECU Cares or by calling 252-737-5555. Students with these behaviors may also be referred directly to the Center for Counseling and Student Development or the Office of the Dean of Students.  Faculty or staff exhibiting these behaviors may also need to be reported to their immediate supervisor.
