Non-Business Hours, Weekends, Holidays Response

CARE Response is available 24/7 for UCSD students, staff, and faculty in need of urgent support/consultation, assistance with reporting options, forensic exam information and accompaniment, and crisis counseling.

To reach CARE during non-business hours and on weekends for support, please call 858-534-5793. Confidential counselors are available to answer calls and provide support and information.

    • A counselor will answer and will ask for the caller's name and phone number. You may provide them with any name you are comfortable giving. 
    • If you would prefer to remain anonymous, you have that option but it may impact the types of services we are able to provide.
    • You may have someone you trust call for you if you feel uncomfortable calling yourself.

If you are experiencing relationship violence and need emergency response, call 911.

UCSD students who are in need of urgent mental health support should call CAPS at (858) 534-3755.
