What to Expect
Upon receipt of a CARE referral, the CARE members will review the information you provided, gather additional information to add in the assessment process and determine the best strategy for follow-up. Individuals who make a referral may be contacted. Depending on the circumstances, that individual may not receive specific information about how the CARE Team plans on responding to their referral.
Examples of responses may influence the following:
- CARE may determine that there is no need for further action but will monitor the situation and concern.
- A CARE representative will circle back around to the referral source and provide suggestions and ways to respond to the concerning behavior.
- A CARE representative may reach out to the individual of concern directly to provide support resources and targeted interventions.
- If the situation requires immediate action, such as situations where the individual is an immediate threat of harming self or others, CARE may coordinate with Campus Security or the Boise Police Department to assist in the response or interim action may be taken by the University.
