Red Folder Initiative

In 2012, UC launched the Red Folder Initiative.Under this initiative, each campus committed to publish a "Red Folder" to serve as a quick reference guide to mental health resources for faculty/staff and graduate teaching/ research assistants who may interact with distressing or distressed students.

The customized folders identify common signs of student/employee distress and direct faculty/staff and graduate teaching/research assistants through campus protocol to clarify who they should contact in the event of an emergency. The folders also provide tips for how to approach a student and/or employee who may be in distress and connect that student/employee with the appropriate resource.

You can download the folder by clicking on the folder below.
