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.

For Emergency Assistance, please call 911 or UCPD (310) 825-1491



Case Managers

Case Managers are available to assist student’s struggling with mental or physical health, facing an unexpected challenge or crisis, or experiencing a personal loss. They can support students by exploring options, identifying on-campus resources, and helping students to create a plan for their next steps. Case Managers typically meet with a student one to four times in person and can check-in with a student via email/phone periodically throughout the academic year. Case Managers are also available to consult with and provide training for staff and faculty who would like to better support students of concern.

  • Case Managers are key members of the Consultation and Response Team (CRT)
    • UCLA’s Consultation & Response Team (CRT) is a group of professional staff members who meet weekly to discuss students of concern by communicating relevant information and coordinating an institutional response. This team is comprised of representatives from a variety of campus departments, including: Case Management Services, Dean of Students, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Student Conduct, Ashe, Res Life, College Academic Counseling (CAC), Behavioral Health Services (BHS), Campus Legal Counsel, UCPD, and the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT).

Economic Crisis Response Team (ECRT)

The Economic Crisis Response Team (ECRT) provides support and guidance to students who have self-identified, or are identified by UCLA faculty or staff, as experiencing a financial crisis that impacts their academic success at UCLA. ECRT aims to efficiently, compassionately and discreetly:

  1. Provide a seamless and individualized response to UCLA students in extraordinary financial crisis.
  2. Develop proposals for actions to examine (and revise, when appropriate) university policies and office protocols in order to improve students' ability to manage their financial situations and avoid economic crisis.

If you are in financial distress, please complete the ECRT Self-Assessment Form.
