CARE Team Vision

  • To intervene early and provide support and response to students displaying varying levels of disruptive, disturbed, distressed and/or deregulated behaviors.
  • To respond with care and respect.
  • To assess the potential for violent or self-harming behaviors while avoiding stigmatizing mental health issues and stereotype-based profiling.
  • To adhere to a formalized protocol for referral, assessment, communication, coordination and intervention.
  • To balance student confidentiality and privacy with university need-to-know and emergency communication needs.
  • To engage faculty, staff and students and staff in effective response with respect to disruptive and/or distressed students.

The CARE Team is not tasked with responding to emergencies. If this is an emergency and you are in need of immediate assistance, contact University Police at 530-898-5555.
