This section is designed to assist faculty and staff when a distressed or distressing student comes to your attention.
Let the student know that you are concerned and recommend getting help from the appropriate source. It may help the student to know that you support their desire to seek help.
If you or the student believe that the matter is urgent and needs immediate attention, the student may be seen during Urgent Care, which is at 10:00am and 3:00pm each weekday. Students should arrive 15 minutes before the top of the hour if possible to complete paperwork. Whenever possible, please contact CAPS to let us know you are referring the student to us. This will help us prepare for the student's arrival. You may accompany the student to our office if that is helpful.
For emergencies requiring hospital care, please contact Campus Public Safety.
If you feel that you would benefit from discussing the situation with one of our clinicians, please contact our office to get consultation. We can assist you with identifying helpful resources on campus and how refer the student to CAPS. Contact our office at 206-296-6090 to request consultation during business hours.
On evenings and weekends, contact Campus Public Safety at 206.296.5990 for assistance with any situations of concern.
