UW Bothell CARE Team

Consultation, Assessment, Response, Education

The UW Bothell CARE Team is a confidential resource for the entire campus community when there are concerns about a student’s well-being.  Our purpose is to provide proactive and supportive consultation, assessment, response, and education regarding students who may be at risk or in distress.

CARE Team services include:

  • Consultation regarding your concerns
  • Assessing a student’s well-being
  • Responding in a caring, non-threatening manner
  • Educating the UW Bothell community on how to assess and respond to student distress

This group's university-wide membership includes representatives from the Office of Student Services, the Office of Student Life, Campus Safety and faculty.

In case of an EMERGENCY or imminent threat: Call 911 and Campus Safety (425) 352-2222.
