A “Tier 1” approach to support:
The purpose of this form is to provide the Davis community with a vehicle to refer students to Counseling Services who are displaying signs of distress. It is for more of a one-on-one approach with the student’s assigned counselor to address issues that can benefit from short term individual counseling, check ins and outs, etc. Our intention is to respond as quickly as possible to students in distress and, as much as possible, avoid crisis situations. While it is preferable for us to know who is referring a distressed student, you can remain anonymous if you wish. Every effort is made by the Ms. Carrasco and Mr. Akram to balance the need to protect the student’s well-being with the student's right to privacy. In keeping with professional and ethical guidelines, the information obtained is not shared with anyone without the student's consent, except in the case of medical emergency or potentially life-threatening situations.
