You do not have to make that determination. The most important step is that you report the concerning behavior. If another campus resource is more appropriate, the CARE Team will refer the student and handle the transfer of information. If in doubt, please refer and our case manager will follow up.
Any student attending Fresno State is eligible to receive case management services.
The information shared with the Case Manager does not fall under the same confidentiality levels of a healthcare provider or psychotherapist/counselor. Every effort is made to protect your privacy and the information discussed will only be shared in the context of assisting the student. The Case Manager will only share information on a need-to-know basis strictly for the coordination of services. Written releases of information are signed by the student, when necessary.
Case management services are located in the Student Health and Counseling Center in the Counseling & Psychological Services area. To schedule an appointment call 559.278.2734.
