The Shasta College BIRT is a member of NaBITA, the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association https://nabita.org/. As such, our vision is to make our campuses and workplaces safer environments where development, education, and caring intervention are fostered and encouraged.
Whether it is to combat bullying, prevent violence, support individuals with disabilities, empower the success of those suffering from mental health challenges, or assist those who are in crisis, our members are joined in common purpose and exploration of best practices.
Members of the Student Health & Wellness Office, as well as other college faculty and staff, are actively involved in the Behavioral Intervention Resource Team (BIRT). Chaired by Morris Rodrigue, Vice President of Administrative Services, the BIRT assists faculty, staff and administration with identifying interventions that assist stressed or disruptive student situations. Additionally, the BIRT may be of help to faculty and staff with crisis management when there is a suicide or sudden loss in or affecting the college environment.
