The Lakeland University Intervention Team is comprised of an interdisciplinary group of  community members. The role of each team member is to receive information and make appropriate recommendations and intervention plans concerning any community member’s behaviors based on the special knowledge and professional expertise of the team member. All recommendations of the team will be referred to the appropriate office or administrator who has the authority to act as necessary.


All information shared with the Lakeland Intervention Team will be kept in the strictest confidence. The web-based reporting system connects to a confidential database. The form will ask for your name, but you may also report anonymously if you so desire. If you chose to report anonymously, please keep the referal number so you may check on the status of your report and respond to any questions the team may have.
