Care Team

 

The HSC cares about our students’ success, not only academically, but emotionally and physically as well. Because of our commitment, we provide services across campus that respond to our students’ unique needs. The HSC Care Team receives referrals and supports students experiencing personal, emotional, and/or medical concerns and is made up of representatives from various departments on campus so that a well-rounded, holistic support system is in place for the HSC community. The Care Team is designed to support students through non-clinical case management by connecting them with resources and serving as an on-campus source of support.

Mission
• Create solutions for healthier communities by assisting in promoting the health, safety, and well-being of the HSC community.

How to Refer a Student to the Care Team
The Care Team serves a centralized reporting source for any individual (students, faculty, staff, parents, etc.) who is concerned about a student and would like assistance. Referrals can be made through the Person of Concern Reporting Form found at http://unthsc.edu/personofconcern. You can select the nature of the report and identify and provide context for the concern being reported.

Centralized Reporting Tool for Care Team Referrals, Violations of the Student Code of Conduct, and Reports of Sexual Assault/Misconduct

 

The HSC cares about our students’ success, not only academically, but emotionally and physically as well. The HSC also strives to provide all students with a campus environment that is conducive to academic endeavors and social and individual growth. Because of our commitment, we strive to provide services across campus that respond to our students’ unique needs. In an effort to increase opportunities to identify students of concern, a centralized reporting tool was created to capture Care Team referrals, violations of the Student Code of Conduct & Discipline, and Sexual Assault/Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) reports within one online form. The Person of Concern Reporting Form can be found at: http://unthsc.edu/personofconcern. Individuals making a referral can select the nature of their report and identify and provide context for the nature of their concern. By utilizing one central referral method, opportunities are created to gather complete and thorough information in an effort to support our campus in a holistic manner.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Dr. Emily Mire (Emily.Mire@unthsc.edu).

Thank you for playing a part in keeping our students safe and contributing to solutions for a healthier community!
