About the Care Program

The Care Program provides support to the Behavioral Consultation Team (BCT) by addressing reports of concerning student behavior and providing a coordinated response to situations arising from students who may represent a threat of harm to themselves or others.

The Care Program staff connects with students to listen, support and explore resources for:  stress management, mental health support, substance use or abuse recovery support, unexpected financial hardship, food & housing insecurity,  and post-hospitalization (short-term assistance with coordination of care). 

The Care Program provides consultation, training, and support to faculty and staff as it relates to concerns about students. Additionally, the Care Managers can assist in linking departments and units to educational programing for faculty, staff, and students as it relates to student mental health and wellness.

Goals

  • Support students during times of increased stress or crisis
