CARE Team

Mission:

The CARE Team supports student health and well-being by helping students navigate the challenges that arise throughout their college career. As an interdisciplinary group of staff and faculty, the CARE Team connects students to on-campus resources, empowering them to thrive and prosper during their time at Marymount and beyond.

The CARE Team accepts referrals from students, their families, faculty and staff when concerns for students’ health, well-being and safety are identified.

Referral Guide:

By fostering collaborative relationships with University departments and maintaining open lines of communication with previously identified and referred students, their families, faculty and staff, the CARE Team makes a commitment to educating the University community about existing policies and instructing community members on how to address students in crisis.

To learn more about how to recognize indicators of stress, how to respond appropriately, or how to refer, we have created a Referral Guide. Please click below to view the Referral Guide.
