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.
PROMOTE SELF-CARE IN THE CLASSROOM
After encouraging students to talk about their mental health, and after downloading the app, take the next step and engage in a self-care activity. Self-care in the classroom can be something such as giving students time to complete the “SafeUT Coloring Page” with their favorite colors.
