The University of North Texas cares about the well-being of our students, staff, and faculty. Because of this commitment, we provide multiple resources and services that support campus members. In an effort to be proactive, UNT created a network of professionals who are committed to a caring program of identification, intervention, and response in order to support students, staff, and faculty, and to provide our community with the greatest level of protection. If you are concerned about someone being a threat to self or others, contact 911 for emergencies. For non-emergencies, go to
