Students can connect with their neighborhood teams for support and resources. The neighborhood Resident Director (RD) is a great place to start. Our priority when responding to a concern is to care for you and your neighborhood. 

Here are some ways we can help:

1:1 Partnerships: Supportive consultation, problem-solving, assessment and management, empowerment

  • Referrals: Connecting students to campus resources for stress-coping, anxiety, grief, mental health, academic issues, alcohol/other drug(s) support and education
  • Managing Relationships: Roommates, community, social groups
  • COVID19 Isolation Support: Temporary space, meal delivery, general check ins

Intervention: Outreach/wellness check, collaboration with academic advisors, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Stanford Department of Public Safety (SUDPS), campus resource/process referrals, incident debriefing, and managing community impact

Urgent Response: Provide on-site response and support from Resident Directors (RDs), on-call support to Resident Fellows (RFs) and Student Staff, receive/address concerns for student well-being, COVID19 support, and urgent referrals to University support/resources
