The Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (CARE) Team serves the campus community by assessing and addressing a wide variety of personal and academic issues that can sometimes become barriers to students’ success. Such barriers include:
- Financial distress
- Stress and Anxiety
- Self-harming and suicidal ideation
Students may request help from the CARE Team for themselves or on behalf of another student for whom concern is felt. To make a request, please complete the CARE Team form. Faculty and staff may submit concerns via the Early Alert Messages tool when logged into my.westshore.edu. All requests are confidential and will only be shared on a “need to know” basis.
Please note: Submitted CARE Team forms may not be immediately reviewed. If you or someone you know is in danger, at imminent risk of harming self or others, or in need of immediate medical attention, please call 911.
