We are at a busy time in the fall quarter and thought it might be a good time to highlight some of the support services offered by the Division of Student Affairs.
A new handbook is available for faculty and staff to promote student mental health. We also wanted to remind our community of resources available to assist students in distress. We are pleased that this fall we have added staff and doubled the number of mental health peers who are working to make connections with students for referrals and support. Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers a range of groups and seminars on many topics. For emergencies, always call 911 or UCPD at 805-893-3446, but if you need a consultation or want someone to follow up after business hours, please see our distressed student resources. Students and parents can also contact our Student-Parent Liaison, D'anna Sandor at email@example.com. We also want to remind you that the CAPS number (805-893-4411) is available 24/7 for students who need support in the moment or after business hours.
Remember that Campus Learning Assistance Services (CLAS) is always available to assist with study skills and time management as well.
Additionally, if you believe you have witnessed, or that you have been a target of a hate-or bias-motivated incident you may make a report to the University online here or by calling: 805-893-5016. The UC Police may be reached by calling: 805-893-3446 or 911 in an emergency. You can read more about resources regarding hate or bias incidents here and here.
Best wishes in completing fall quarter!
