C.A.R.E. Team: Behaviors of Concern & Signs of Distress

Created with Sketch.

What should I do when I am concerned about the behavior or the wellbeing of a classmate?

MSM established the Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation (C.A.R.E.) Team in 2013 to better manage getting help to those who need it, and to make sure MSM identifies anyone who poses a potential danger to others. The C.A.R.E. Team is composed of individuals who have specific expertise and professional training in the assessment of, and intervention with, individuals who may present a threat to themselves and/or the Manhattan School of Music Community. The C.A.R.E. Team can follow up with appropriate resources to give the referred individual the physical, psychological and academic support they need. The C.A.R. E. Team also seeks to educate the campus community on the importance of prompt reporting of the problematic behaviors. The C.A.R.E. Team Referral Form is one way to communicate to the C.A.R.E. Team.
