CARE (Campus Assault Resources & Education) is a safe place for UCLA students who are victims or survivors of sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, stalking, and sexual harassment to get support, consultation, and counseling services.
CARE Advocates are available to support and advocate for UCLA student victims or survivors. They can assist students in finding resources and navigating reporting options. CARE Advocates can also assist students in receiving campus accommodations. You can get help from CARE Advocates without formally reporting an assault.

Consultation and Response Team (CRT)
UCLA believes that students' well-being and safety are paramount to academic success. We share the responsibility of responding when a student's health or safety is at risk by reporting these concerns to the appropriate offices and referring students to campus resources. UCLA's Consultation & Response Team (CRT) is a group of professional staff members charged with responding to reports of students who may be in distress. This team is comprised of representatives from key campus departments, such as The College, Dean of Students, Counseling and Psychological Services, Residential Life, and the UCLA Police Department.
Case Managers are available to meet directly with students or advise campus constituents on how to work with students in distress. Please email CRTeam@ucla.edu with your request and someone will get back to you during business hours. Case Managers do not maintain 24 hour access to email or phone.
If you need an immediate response after hours or on weekends please call UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services 24 hour access line (310) 825-0768 or call the UCPD 24 hour dispatch line at (310) 825-1491 or dial 911 for your local police.
Economic Crisis Response Team (ECRT)
The Economic Crisis Response Team (ECRT) provides support and guidance to students who have self-identified, or are identified by UCLA faculty or staff, as experiencing a financial crisis that impacts their academic success at UCLA. We aim to efficiently, compassionately and discreetly:
1. Provide a seamless and individualized response to UCLA students in extraordinary financial crisis.
2. Develop proposals for actions to examine (and revise, when appropriate) university policies and office protocols in order to improve students' ability to manage their financial situations and avoid economic crisis.
