How Do I Make a Referral?
To make a referral to SOS and SOCAT, please complete our Online Referral Form.
When making a referral, please complete the "Description of Concern" section with as much detail as possible. We ask that you provide a detailed and objective description of actual observed behavior, statements, written communication, etc. Also, please provide specific examples of observed behavior, direct quotes of what the student said and attach any emails exchanged, concerning writings, personal statements, etc.
We have found that when you have a relationship with the student, it is helpful to let the student know that you plan to make a referral based on your concerns. Let them know why you are concerned, and how you think SOS and SOCAT can be helpful. Remind them that the referral is designed to get them support and resources. See the text box for suggested language of how you might explain this to a student.
