DCCCD cares about its students’ academic, emotional and physical success. The (Campus, Assessment, Response and Evaluation) CARE Team was created to accept referrals regarding individuals in distress or whose behavior raises concerns about their well-being or that of others. The CARE Team also addresses behaviors or mental, emotional or psychological health conditions that may be disruptive, harmful or pose a direct threat or risk to the health and safety of the Richland College community.
Complete the CARE Team Online Referral Form.
A member of the CARE Team will review this information Monday-Friday within 24 business hours.
This form is not for emergency situations.
In case of an emergency call 911 on a campus phone or 972-860-4290 from a cell phone.
Please also refer those individuals for whom you have general concerns. The CARE Team will connect with the individual and provide support. The Counseling Center is also a consultation resource. They can assist you in approaching the distressed person or guide you to the CARE Team referral process.
