Care Navigator

The Care Navigator:

  • Creates a safe and non-judgmental place for students to be understood and supported.
  • Assists students in getting connected to different support resources, both on and off campus, that can play a significant role in their overall success and well being.
  • Helps students manage and address their challenges before they interfere with academic success and emotional well being.  

It can be overwhelming when you are faced with a situation that is out of your comfort zone and it’s hard to know what to do. If you have a concern about the safety and well-being of a student, or are significantly struggling yourself, contact the CARE Navigator for guidance to access a preventative student support pathway of holistic coordinated services to best meet the needs of UTHSC students. You can make an appointment with the CARE Navigator in SASSI, by emailing sassi@uthsc.edu or careteam@uthsc.edu, calling 901.448.5056 or 901.448.7746  or sharing a concern at uthsc.edu/care-concern.

Please complete the necessary forms for a first time CARE Navigator Appointment located on the sidebar and bring them with you to your appointment or send them via email to sassi@uthsc.edu. If you are unable to complete prior to the appointment, please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment in order to complete the forms.
