Self-Quarantine and Self-Reporting

The information will be kept secure and confidential.

Counseling Services

DCCCD's professionally licensed counselors are currently working remotely. Counseling services are provided free of charge and each campus has a specific counselor assigned to help our students. Each counselor can provide professional counseling with a focus on mental health and well-being.

CARE Services

The CARE Team was created to accept referrals regarding individuals in distress, struggling with basic needs, experiencing unexpected crises or whose behavior raises concerns about their well-being or that of others.

If you see or hear something, say something. That's the motto of DCCCD's CARE Team.

The CARE Team has been trained to appropriately address mental, emotional or psychological health conditions that may be disruptive, harmful or pose a direct threat or risk to the health and safety of the DCCCD community.

How Do You Make a Referral to the CARE Team?

Online services are available for students during this time of temporary remote instruction. Please complete the CARE Team Online Referral Form in order to communicate with a team member. A representative of the CARE Team will review this information Monday-Friday within 24 business hours.

Note: This form is not for emergency situations. If you find yourself or someone you know an immediate danger, call 911.
