Feeling safe while working or going to school at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio is something most of us take for granted. However, there could be times when you feel concerned, uncomfortable or perhaps even threatened by the behavior of others.

Consult care.uthscsa.edu
To address these concerns, the Behavior Intervention Team developed the CARE (Campus Awareness Requires Everyone) website, http://care.uthscsa.edu.

The website provides training and resources that can help you take action in preventing campus violence and reacting to dangerous situations.

Reach out to others
“Violence often results from common, everyday stresses, such as failing grades and problem marriages,” said Kozue Shibazaki, Ph.D., chair of the Behavior Intervention Team and director of Student Counseling Services. “The key is that we all share a responsibility for helping to keep our campus safe.”

“While we sometimes feel uncomfortable becoming involved in someone else’s problems, just having someone to talk to can help. The Health Science Center has a number of counseling resources to help people deal with stressful situations, such workplace issues, financial concerns, marriage problems and issues with grades or children,” Dr. Shibazaki said.

“The CARE website has information on how to get counseling, as well as important phone numbers, warning signs, tips on how to react to a violent situation and an excellent training video that could save your life,” she continued.
