Concerned About a Student?

Faculty, staff, and students may become concerned about a student in distress or whose behaviors are concerning to others.

Immediate Assistance

If you need immediate assistance, please call University Police at 911 or 323.343.3700.


The CARE Team is a campus resource for students, faculty and staff who have concerns regarding alarming, problematic, and/or disruptive student behavior. The team responds to non-emergency concerns and uses a proactive approach to discuss potential problems, intervene early, and develop appropriate courses of action for referred students.

The goal is to support students who may be in distress and/or whose behavior is of concern to others before they rise to crisis levels.

Consultation with CAPS

If you need immediate assistance, please call University Police at 911 or 323.343.3700.

To seek advice about a student in distress, please make a CARE Team report. A CARE Team report notifies CAPS in addition to other members of the CARE Team who may be more suited to help the student than CAPS.

Those who prefer a direct consultation with CAPS may call 323.343.3314 or walk in to the Student Health Center, Top Floor, Station #4.
