UNA Campus Assistance Referral and Evaluation Team (CARE Team)

The CARE Team at the University of North Alabama was created in response to growing concerns and increased awareness on college and university campuses regarding students' emotional well-being and safety, and other obstacles to academic success. The purpose of the CARE Team is to enable the University to provide early intervention, support and behavioral response to students displaying varying levels of disruptive, distressed, disturbed and/or dysregulated behaviors to help ensure the health and safety of all members of the UNA community.Responding to at-risk and/or in-crisis students' needs and providing appropriate referrals can prevent an escalation of the situation and help keep the student and campus community safe. Please be aware that this work relies on referrals from the entire campus community and can only be effective with your support. Be assured that our group observes FERPA restrictions with Counseling and Psychological Services adhering to more stringent HIPAA requirements to protect student privacy.If you observe behavior that is of concern, please take action to get help for the student by referring the student to the CARE Team or other resource service.
