The Jefferson State CARE Team (Communicate, Assess, Refer, Educate) is committed to maintaining individual and overall faculty, staff, and student safety and well-being through pro-active and collaborative prevention, assessment, and intervention.

Purpose

The JeffCARE Team helps find solutions for students experiencing academic, social and crisis situations including mental health concerns. Members of the college community can report a concern for a student who might benefit from services. We review these reports to understand each student issue and the on- and off-campus resources that may guide them to success.

The JeffCARE Team steps in to connect students with relevant campus resources and outside agencies. Most times, we may need to communicate with the reporting party to help accurately assess the needs of the student. The JeffCARE Team will also outreach to the student to understand his/her situation and develop a plan of action leading towards his/her success.

Team Members

The JeffCARE Team is a small, confidential group of campus officials with representatives from the following College offices:
