  • The Caltech Counseling Center is committed to helping graduate and undergraduate students achieve academic excellence and enjoy a rewarding experience while studying at Caltech. We realize that while most students cope successfully with the challenges these years bring, a number of students find the various pressures of life stressful—sometimes to the point of interfering with their academic studies and emotional well-being. Advisors may encounter these distressed students, many of whom have not sought any psychological help. Thus, their role can be a crucial one in identifying and referring students who are in distress. See the Counseling Center's Faculty and Staff Guide to Helping a Distressed Student.

  • Caltech's Safety Net Approach: Preventing Suicide and Violence – This is an online presentation with audio to help identify individuals in distress and assist them in receiving support.
