Student In Crisis

Sun shining over Bruin Walk

UCLA believes that students’ well-being and safety are paramount to academic success. We share the responsibility of responding when a student’s health or safety is at risk by reporting these concerns to the appropriate offices and referring students to campus resources. UCLA’s Consultation & Response Team (CRT) is a group of professional staff members charged with responding to reports of students who may be in distress. This team is comprised of representatives from key campus departments, such as The College, Dean of Students, Counseling and Psychological Services Residential Life, and the UCLA Police Department.
