Making a Referral to CAPE

Every situation is different. Use your own judgement to determine how to best refer students to campus resources. Feel free to help the student schedule an appointment.

To schedule a confidential appointment with the CAPE advocate:

Phone: (310) 243-2567 (can respond immediately if available)
Hours: Monday - Friday,
9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. (after-hours available upon request)
Location: will be provided once appointment is scheduled

Notifying the CARE team

If you have concerns and are wondering, "Whom should I tell about this?" the CARE Team is available to consult and help plan interventions when necessary. We have a multidisciplinary team to help analyze and direct resources as necessary. However, if you feel there is a chance for imminent harm, contact the University Police Department at 9-1-1.

The following behaviors, especially when more than one are present, may be signs that a student is in distress:

  • Significant change in appearance, mood, and/or social functioning
  • Behavior that creates a disruptive or hostile environment
  • Actions that potentially endanger the safety of any member of the CSUDH community
  • Behavior that impacts one's ability to function appropriately and successfully on campus
  • A sense that someone is struggling or that something is wrong
