The best interests of the entire Mizzou community are in helping students succeed. When students are struggling, we want to intervene as soon as possible, before their difficulties become bigger.
If you are a MU faculty member, staff member or family member who’s concerned about a Mizzou student, a Care Team coordinator can provide you with a consultation and resources that will help.
In addition to Care Team coordinators, Mizzou has many other resources to help members of the campus community. See also the MU Guide to Assisting Students in Distress.
Information shared with the Care Team does not fall under the same confidentiality levels of a health care provider or therapist/psychologist. Every effort is made to ensure privacy, and information only is shared on a need-to-know basis. A Care Team coordinator can refer students to a confidential provider. Signed releases of information are often used.
