Faculty & Staff Resources

Welcome faculty and staff! Here are some helpful links and online resources to support the emotional wellness of our Toro community.

Consultations with SPS

Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact us for individual mental health consultations. Some reasons for consultations with SPS might include:

  • Discussing a student in distress
  • Discussing disruptive behavior in the classroom
  • Seeking support around improving mental health in the work environment
  • Obtaining general mental health information or supportive resources

Supporting Students in Distress


If someone on campus is experiencing a physical or mental health emergency, contact the University Police.

  • 9-1-1 from any on-campus phone
  • Dial 310.243.3333 from cellular phones
  • you can also push the TALK button on the red Emergency Call Towers located on campus, which will connect you directly to University Police dispatch. 

For non-emergency services, contact University Police at 310.243.3639


The Red Folder provides tips for how to approach a student who may be in distress and connect that student with the appropriate resource.

SEE Something, SAY Something, DO Something 


The CSUDH Campus Awareness, Response, & Education (CARE) team is a multi-disciplinary group of campus officials that work in a proactive and collaborative approach to respond to non-emergency concerns. The CARE team works to intervene early and develop appropriate courses of action for referred students.
