The student shows signs of distress, but I am unsure how serious it is. My interaction has left me feeling uneasy and/or really concerned about the student.Consult with and/or refer to the CARE Team
I'm not concerned for the student's immediate safety, but the student is having significant academic and/or personal issues and could use some support or additional resources. Refer student to the CARE Team
