SAFEUT: A SAFE PLACE FOR STUDENTS AND EDUCATORS

An educator’s job involves more than just instilling facts or numbers in the minds of students. It can also involve looking out for those students’ emotional wellbeing. Here you’ll find resources to assist you in this important role. 

Of course, don’t forget yourself. The long days and nights of an educator can be emotionally taxing, and SafeUT is there for you too, offering support and referral assistance any time.

SafeUT is an easy, accessible, and active way for anyone to take action for themselves or a loved one.

EMPOWERING YOUR STUDENTS

Encourage students to talk about their emotions and let them know the app is available to support them. Listen to their concerns about school issues. If a student feels anyone’s safety or mental well-being is threatened, suggest using the app to submit a tip. And of course, don't be afraid to use the app yourself.
