“Maybe you’re having a tough time helping your friend deal with their tough time...”

The CARE Network at the University of Rochester exists to identify and support students who may be struggling. This video offers an overview of CARE and depicts three interviews: One with a faculty member who utilizes CARE, one with a student who self-referred to CARE, and one with a referrer who submitted a CARE referral about a friend in need. The video’s overarching message is, “You don’t have to struggle alone”.
