UCLA Consultation & Response

One of the goals of Case Management Services and the Consultation & Response Team is to educate the campus community on how to recognize signs that a student may be in crisis, and what to do when they see those signs. We share the responsibility of responding when a student’s health or safety might be at risk. True Bruins help students in crisis.

Faculty, TAs, staff and student leaders play a critical role in a student’s university experience and are in a position to become aware of a student in distress or a student of concern. Our presentations will help you understand the components of this central role: identifying, responding to and referring distressed students. Participants will learn to respond effectively to specific types of distressing behaviors to minimize disruption while assisting the student with appropriate resources.

  • "Case Management 101" -- Case Management 101 is designed to help individuals understand the Case Management Services team, how the team is different from and is similar to UCLA's Consultation & Response Team (CRT), and when the two teams work together. During this training participants will also be presented with the level of cases that Case Management handles and how to make referrals to the appropriate campus resources.

  • "Bruins Supporting Bruins" -- Bruins Supporting Bruins is a training designed specifically for students to learn how to recognize when a peer needs help, how to talk to them about their needs, and which campus resources can offer support. The workshop also reviews Case Management Services and how they can help. Students will apply these lessons by using practice scenarios and discussing the approach they’d take with their peers.
  • "Suicide Safe" -- UCLA’s Suicide Safe Training’s objective is to help members of the UCLA community understand suicide and assist with its prevention outside of mental health settings. In this training you will be able to: recognize that we are all affected by personal, societal and cultural attitudes about suicide (2) use a step-by-step technique to act to help a person at risk of suicide and be safe for now (3) identify the next step after a person has been assisted in a suicide-related crisis (4) appreciate the value of improving community resources; and appreciate the concepts of life-promotion and self-care in the context of suicide. There are two options: a one-hour Zoom presentation OR a one hour & 45 minute, in-person presentation.
