Make a referral to CAPS
If the student needs more support, encourage them to contact Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) to schedule an individual appointment (812-855-5711). Remind the student that CAPS services are confidential.
If you would like to continue talking to the student, but need more help on what to say, you can consult with a CAPS counselor. They can help provide you with some guidelines. Consultation services are available Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by calling 812-855-571.
If a student appears to be in immediate risk of causing harm to themselves or others, call 9-1-1 immediately.
Another way to request help with an issue or concern, especially if you don't know which office or department to contact, is to submit a Care Referral. Anyone who is concerned about the safety or well-being of an IU student—including parents, IU faculty and staff, community members, and other students—can submit a confidential Care Referral about that person.Submit a Care Referral
