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 in effective response with respect to disruptive 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.
