Care Coordinator

The CCAD Care Coordinator works with current students to help them overcome obstacles to their success and wellness. Modern college students face a variety of unique challenges and would benefit from having someone help them break down big problems into smaller, achievable goals. Care Coordination is a great first stop if a student is struggling and doesn’t know where to start or who to go to for help. The Care Coordinator will work with the student to identify stressors and connect them with resources on and off campus. After the initial meeting, the Care Coordinator will make a plan with the student on how they would like to be supported moving forward, whether it be a follow-up meeting, email check-ups, or additional resources. 

Some common issues students face that Care Coordinator can assist with include:

  • Time Management
  • Setting and Meeting Goals
  • Adjusting to College Life
  • Understanding and Obtaining Insurance 
  • Finding Medical Care
  • Connecting to Campus and Community Resources 
  • Living Independently
  • Budgeting 
  • Study Skills 
  • Organization and Planning Skills
