The Care Team provides one-on-one support, including interventions, advocacy, referrals and follow-up services when you are experiencing significant difficulties related to mental health, physical health, personal and family emergencies, financial issues or other areas of concern. We are available to consult with staff, faculty, friends and parents.
The Care Team is committed to assisting you in successfully navigating the University of Missouri campus. As Care Team coordinators, we take a holistic approach in our work. This means that we are active, empathic listeners and focus on the whole person in front of us. Our goal is to join you in tackling challenges so that you do not feel alone in the process.
Care Team coordinators provide resources and information to help you navigate university systems and policies while prioritizing your well-being and academic success, making connections with faculty, staff and other offices that can collaborate with you to ensure your needs are met, and to help you develop self-advocacy skills that prepare you for involvement in the larger community and life beyond college.
The Care Team is not counseling or therapy. Care Team coordinators have the opportunity to develop close helping relationships with you while coaching you toward appropriate self-care and self-advocacy.

- Academic challenges
- Mental health concerns
- Physical illness or injury
- Financial challenges
- Loss of family members or close friends
- Medical withdraw
