Resources for Portland State Community Members and Students in Distress

 PSU logo  PSU Caring Community


As Portland State community members, whether faculty, staff, students, or parents, we play a vital role in creating and supporting a healthy campus community.  It is important to promote the health and well-being of every individual by learning the skills necessary to reach out, lend support, and, if needed, to make a referral.

If you are in need of immediate assistance please call Campus Public Safety at 503.725.4404

If you have any concerns about a student, please call the Assistant Dean of Student Life and C.A.R.E. Team Case Manager at 503.725.4492 or enter a report at
